Bhubaneswar: Hearing the plea of Odisha for formation of tribunal to resolve the ongoing Mahanadi water sharing dispute with neighbouring Chhattisgarh, Supreme Court on Monday directed the Centre to submit its report by 3rd week of January on formation of the tribunal.

Expressing dissatisfaction over Centre’s stand over the issue, the apex court ruled that further dilly-dallying by the Centre would compel the court to consider the case on merit basis.

The previous week, Centre had filed a 14-page affidavit hinting at no need of any Tribunal formation alleging that Odisha Government was non-cooperative and had not submitted adequate data and information to substantiate its complaint against Chhattisgarh’s allegedly unilateral constructions on the upsteam of Mahanadi.

Besides the Tribunal demand, Odisha has been demanding an immediate stop to the objectionable constructions by Chhattisgarh arguing that such actions are adversely affecting sufficient water flow into Odisha part of Mahanadi during non-monsoon session and even in the monsoon as compared to erstwhile years.
