Mullaperiyar Dam
New Delhi, Apr 24: It is expected that the water controversy between Kerala and Tamil Nadu would be solved soon. The Supreme Court appointed Empowered Committee is ready with their final report on the controversial Mullaperiyar Dam, sources informed on Monsday, Apr 23.

The panel, headed by former Chief Justice of India AS Anand would submit their final report before the apex court on Wednesday. The panel members claimed that they have focused on all key aspects of the 119-year-old dam including its safety.

Former Supreme Court Judge AR Lakshmanan said, "The report has been finalised. All the members have signed the report today. We will be submitting it to the Supreme Court on Wednesday."

While Tamil Nadu contends that the dam is safe and its water level has to be raised from 132 ft to 136 ft, Kerala says the structure is weak and it has to be replaced with a new dam.
