In a dispute over the sharing of Krishna River water, Andhra Pradesh Govt. filed a petition with the SC against Telangana Govt

The purpose of the writ petition is to direct the Federation of India to notify the Krishna River Management Board (KRMB) of its jurisdiction under Article 87 of the Andhra Pradesh Reorganization Act of 2014. It likewise looked for headings to KRMB to agree with the Krishna Water Disputes Tribunal (KWDT-I) choice until their purview is told.

The earlier decision taken by KWDT pursuant to Sections 5 (2) and 5 (3) of the Interstate River Water Disputes Act 1956 (1956 Act) gave Andhra Pradesh the freedom to use more than 75 surplus flows, but without rights for such use. The AP status assigned to the above is 800 TMC and the total return is 811 TMC.

This decision was confirmed in the decision of the Second Water Tribunal (KWDT-II) in 2014. After the former Andhra Pradesh was divided into Andhra Pradesh and Telangana in 2014, it agreed to distribute 811 TMCs produced by KWDT-I, 299 TMCs in Telangana, and 512 TMCs in Andhra Pradesh. The agreement (2015 agreement) was previously signed and controlled by KRMB.

The petition stems from an allegation that Telangana State violated the integrated reservoir operation rules and the 2015 agreement to indiscriminately draw water for energy. The petition was drafted by Attorney G Umapathy, guided by the lead attorney Dushyant Dave, and filed through attorney Mahfooz Nazki.
