On the last date of hearing, the Centre had told the court that it could not be directed to set up the Cauvery Management Board. The Centre said that this is a function of the legislature and not the judiciary.

The court will hear this matter separately. The court had also directed Karnataka to release 2,000 cusecs of water to Tamil Nadu between October 7 and 18. The Supreme Court will hear the matter on Tuesday.
