A notification by the Water Resources Ministry said the authority will be headed by a chairman and it will have two whole time and as many part time members. While the whole time members will be appointed by the Centre, the other two will be nominated by it.

Besides this, the four states will nominate one representative each as additional part time members of the committee.
