Karnataka may release Cauvery water

Our Bureau

BANGALORE, Aug. 11

KARNATAKA is likely to release Cauvery water to its neighbouring States, following the diktat of the monitoring committee of the Cauvery River Authority (CRA).

The move comes in the wake of current dry spells gripping the States. However, the decision of the monitoring committee is not binding on the State as the final decisive power rests only with the CRA.

State Government officials in the Water Department said, "a final decision on releasing water is likely in a week's time". "Things look difficult for us at the moment as 124 taluks are under drought-like situation", the officials said.
