Government ordered them to be listed for orders after disposal of the appeals by the Supreme Court. Further it
also disposed off the CMP No.1/2007 filed by Tamil Nadu.

Before the Supreme Court of India:

Aggrieved by the final orders of the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal dated 05.02.2007, Karnataka
filed Civil Appeal No. 2453/2007 (Vol. I to III – pages 1 to 1038) against the final orders of the Tribunal under
Article 136 of Constitution on 23.04.2007. Thereafter additional documents (Vol. IV to XXV – pages 1039 to
6759) have been filed between 04.05.2009 and 11.02.2009 in support of issues that are to be argued before the
Supreme Court.
Further, conferences in this respect were held both in Bangalore and ta New Delhi frequently
throughout the year with Senior Counsel Sri. F.S .Nariman and Sri. Anil.B.Divan in preparation for the ensuing
arguments.

I. A No. 3 of 2008 filed by Tamil Nadu in Civil Appeal No. 2453/2007:


Tamil Nadu filed the above I.A in Supreme Court regarding taking up of Shivanasamudram Hydro Electric
Project by the State of Karnataka. The State of Tamil Nadu insisted that the four Hydro Electric Schemes viz.,
Shivanasamudram, Mekedatu, Rasimalai and Hogenekal (the first two lie entirely in Karnataka area, whereas the
other two lie in the common reach between Karnataka and Tamil Nadu) be taken up as a joint venture by the
Government of India and that Shivanasamudram and Mekedatu should not be individually taken up by the
State of Karnataka.
The replies to the above I.A have been prepared and approved by the Government. The same is to be
finalized by the Senior Counsel Sri. F.S. Nariman and has to be filed before the Supreme Court.

Before the Cauvery River Authority:


After the Final Award of the CWDT on 05.02.2007 Karnataka is of the opinion that neither the Interim
Order nor the final order is under operation as the Tribunal in its interim order had stated that the interim order
will be in effect till the final order is pronounced but the final order has not yet been notified by the Government
of India, whereas Tamil Nadu is of the contention that the interim order dated: 25.06.1991 still survives.

The Government of India had indicated that till the final Order is notified, the interim order holds sway.
Karnataka has differed on this and has urged that the matter can only be resolved by CRA.

Under such circumstances, whether the regime of flows is to be regulated as per Interim order or as per
final order remained unresolved. As such during the year 2008-09 the regime of flows to be regulated to Tamil
Nadu under distress condition was requested for from the CRA. In this respect several letters were addressed to
Government of India to convene the CRA meeting at the earliest. But till to date it is not been convened.

20
During the year the gauging at Biligundlu have shown that a quantity of 199.96 tmc has flown to Tamil
Nadu to end of 3/2009. The computations of Tamil Nadu at Mettur indicate the flow reaching Mettur as 195.55
tmc during the corresponding period.

12.1.10 KRS MODERNISATION

The Krishnarajasagar Reservoir is constructed across the River Cauvery near Kannambaadi village in
Srirangapattana Taluk of Mandya District, with Canals on both the flanks for providing irrigation to an extent of
196000 acres (79312 Hectares) to Mandya and Mysore District. The Left Bank High Level Canal, which is
named as Vishweshvaraya Canal was originally proposed for providing Irrigation to an extent of 120000 Acres
(48,564 Hectares). However, due to various factors like construction of pickup channels, lowering of local
mounds in the command area, subsequent extension of certain branch canals etc., there has been considerable
increase in the command area of Vishweshvaraya Canal. This has resulted in increased withdrawal in various
branches, causing a strain on the canal system.
Due to this the supply of water to the atchkat in the tail end reaches was inadequate. The condition of the
existing canal does not lend itself to higher discharges being drawn. Also two major Aqueducts along the canal
were not able to carry discharges beyond 67 Cumecs (2366 Cusecs). In order to limit the excess utilisation of
water in the atchkat it was programmed to modernise the Vishweshvaraya Canal and also to create fresh atchkat
of 5250 Acres (2125 Hectares).

by the National Commission on Irrigation, 1971 and the National Commission on Agriculture, 1976, the CADP
ensures rapid and optimum utilization of Irrigation Potential created under Major and Medium Irrigation
Projects thereby increasing the agriculture production as also reducing the gap between the potential area
created and the actual area utilised.

THE OBJECTIVES
Irrigation Management is a multi-disciplinary activity involving major department like Irrigation,
Agriculture, Cooperation and other organization engaged in training and research activities. Against this
perspective, CADA was constituted in the year 1970 to work as a catalyst between the various organizations to
reduce the gap between irrigation potential created and utilized, to increase production per unit of water and
land, to reduce the loss of irrigation water in the conveyance system, to improve its efficiency at the farm level
and to ensure equitable distribution of water. The objectives of the CADA, as envisaged under section 10 of the
Karnataka Command Areas Development (K.C.A.D.) Act 1980, are listed below:

To formulate and implement schemes for the Comprehensive Development of the Command Area;

To prevent land erosion and water logging;

To improve soil fertility and regulation of cropping pattern;

To ensure the efficient maintenance of Field channels and Field Drains by the Farmers within the
Command Area;

Localisation and de-localisation of lands for various crops;

Ensuring supply of all inputs and services;

Promotion and setting up of rural growth centres for integrated development of the Command Area;

Development of marketing, processing and storage facilities and adequate communication system;

Arranging for credit facilities to the farmers and artisans;

Organizing agricultural Co-operatives and Associations;

Construction of Field channels and connected drains;

To borrow and lend money necessary for the due discharge of its functions;

Conjunctive use of surface and ground water;

To determine the payment of compensation as provided in sub section [4] of section 12 of KCAD Act
