The Supreme Court on Tuesday directed Karnataka to release 6000 cusecs of Cauvery river water to Tamil Nadu per day from September 21 to 27.

“Release 6000 cusecs of Cauvery river water to Tamil Nadu per day from September 21 to 27,” the Supreme Court ordered the Karnataka government in its ruling in the case on Tuesday.

The SC direction comes as a modification of its earlier order which ended today. Earlier, on September 12, the Supreme Court had directed the Karnataka government to release 12,000 cusecs of Cauvery river water to Tamil Nadu everyday till September 20, modifying its earlier order of 15,000 cusecs water.

The Supreme Court has also directed the Union government to set up a Cauvery Water Managemnet Borad in four weeks.

Meanwhile, both the states have been allowed by the apex court to file objections to the Cauvery Supervisory Committee report within three days.
