final award of the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal (CWDT) notified

This Extraordinary Gazette Notification No. 373 done on Tuesday, 19th February, 2013, Magha 30, 1934 is of great significance…..   It is no ordinary official document….. it is the Notification done by Ministry of Water resources

S.O. 404(E) would read :  Whereas the Central Govt in exercise of the powers conferred upon it by Sec 4 of the Inter-State Water Disputes Act 1956 [33 of 1956] had constituted by notification no. S.O. 437(E) dt 2nd June 1990, the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal (CWDT) to adjudicate upon the water dispute regarding the inter-state river Cauvery………………………..  And whereas, the Supreme Court has given its direction on 4th Feb 2013, which reads as under…………………………  that is the notification in the Gazette of India..

The Happy news for the delta farmers and others is that on the  directions of the Supreme Court, the Centre has notified the final award of the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal (CWDT) on sharing the waters of the Cauvery system among the basin States of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, and Kerala and Union territory of Puducherry. The “extraordinary” notification in the gazette dated February 19, 2013 says the order takes effect on the date of publication.  The Hindu reports that the Union Water Resources Ministry is learnt to have sought the Law Ministry’s opinion on setting up a mechanism as prescribed by the CWDT for implementation of the final award. The Tribunal had recommended the setting up of a Cauvery Management Board/Authority on the lines of the Bhakra Beas Management Board for implementation of the order.

Law can only guide, administer and punish those guilty violating the cannons of law… only the people, the State can ensure proper following up of the Orders and hopefully things happen on the right track………………..
