    Will react after reading the judgement, says Jagadish Shettar

    The Supreme Court on Friday ordered that Karnataka would get an additional 14.75 tmcft of Cauvery water. In what is seen as a setback for Tamil Nadu, the court while delivering the Cauvery waters verdict said that Karnataka will provide 177.2 TMC water to Tamil Nadu. This would mean Karnataka will get additional 14.75 tmcft as compared to the tribunal's order which had ordered release of 192 tmcft. As a result of this TN's water share has been reduced to 177.25 tmcft.

    A three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra gave the cauvery verdict while hearing Karnataka's Special Leave Petition (SLP) against the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal's grant of a water-sharing formula between Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Puducherry.
