for adjudication of the water disputes regarding the Inter-State River Krishna and the
River Valley thereof, emerging from the letters of complaint of Mysore (present
Karnataka), Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh, gave its first report in December, 1973
and further report containing the final order in May, 1976.

1.2 According to Bachawat Tribunal, the enbloc allocation to the 3 States under Scheme
‘A’ including regeneration is as under:

Maharashtra 560 tmc + 25 tmc = 585 tmc


Karnataka 700 tmc + 34 tmc = 734 tmc
Andhra Pradesh 800 tmc + 11 tmc = 811 tmc
Total 2060 tmc + 70 tmc = 2130 tmc

33
A Master Plan Committee constituted to formulate schemes for effective
utilization of Karnataka’s share of water gave its report in 2002 making scheme wise
allocation.

1.3 The Bachawat Tribunal had also devised the Scheme 'B' to allocate surplus waters
available in the Krishna Basin and recommended for allocation of 25% to
Maharashtra, 50% to Karnataka and 25% to Andhra Pradesh. But this is not a part of
the Order of the Tribunal.

1.4 Considering the Complaints filed by the 3 basin States, for constituting a Water
Dispute Tribunal in the matter of sharing of surplus water available in Krishna River
Basin, the Central Government constituted the new Krishna Water Disputes Tribunal
on 02.04.2004. The officials of this unit have worked with full effort in assisting the
Technical Committee constituted for giving necessary technical advice to argue
effectively the right of the State and the legal team by  providing necessary
information from time to time during preparation for arguments before the Supreme
Court and the Tribunals.

1.5 In the report given by the Krishna Water Disputes Tribunal-II on 30th December,
2010, fresh availability of water has been estimated and the State of Karnataka has
been allocated 911 tmc. This is an additional quantity of 177 tmc., apart from the
previous allocation of 734 tmc made by the Bachawat award. Apart from this, the
order to utilize 303 tmc by increasing the height of Almatti dam from the existing
519.6 m to 524.256 m is an achievement of the State. The Krishna Water Decision
Implementation Board has to be set up by the Union Government for implementation

of the Act, the KWDT gave its Further Report containing Final Order on 29.11.2013.
34
1.8 Without modifying the allocations made by KWDT-I at 75% dependability (including
return flow), the allocations made by KWDT-II under different dependabilities are as
follows:

Maharashtra 585 tmc + 81 tmc = 666 tmc


Karnataka 734 tmc + 173 tmc = 907 tmc
Andhra Pradesh 811 tmc + 194 tmc = 1005 tmc
Total 2130 tmc + 448 tmc = 2578 tmc

The State of Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka have filed SLP in the Supreme Court,
seeking legal clarifications on several points contained in the Final Order and Further
Report issued by the Tribunal on 29.11.2013. The 3 SLP’s including the SLP filed by

Petty Repairs 3600 2232

NOTE:- Even though programme is drawn out , it mainly depends upon the inflow of
machinery for repairs which cannot be predicated in advance . However the progress is
monitored monthly and suitable action is being taken whenever lapses are observed.
Major Hurdles :- Even though C.M.O. is exclusively created and entrusted with the task
of repairing the sick machinery, it is observed that many civil divisions are not observing the
instructions issued by Government i.e., the vehicles are not sent to Government C.M.O.,
workshops for repairs. On the other hand, repairs are carried out by the civil divisions
themselves, depriving the C.M.O. from performing its functions.
REMEDY:- It is proper to utilize the Mechanical Engineers and Mechanical staff under
C.M.O. to the optimum capacity. The Government may issue instructions to the Heads of
46
different departments to get the repairs of their vehicle / equipments in C.M.O., workshop
only. Also proposal to stay the organization has also been submitted to Govt. Proposal regd.
Re-strengthening of CMO has also been submitted to Govt. as suggested by A.G. if proper
orders are issued optimum utilization of services of technical staff can be ensured.
Filling up of vacancies:- Since the origin of this organization the vacancy position in key
technical posts like Assistant Engineers, Junior Engineers, Mechanics and Foremen have not
been filled up fully at any point of time. As on date the percentage of vacancy in these cadre
is as under.
Sanctioned Working % of Vacancy
Strength Strength
Assistant Engineer 58 40 68.96%
Junior Engineers 46 31 67.39%__

Remedy:-
From the above, it could be made out that without full cadre strength, works cannot
be carried out to the optimum capacity.

V. CONCLUSION:-
Viewing the aims, functions and the achievements of the C.M.O., it is imperative that
this organization needs to be strengthened and due encouragement with all the necessary co-
operation from the various Civil Divisions has to be imparted to it to achieve ever lasting
results in the up-coming of the organization.

12.2.3 KALASA NALA AND BANDHUR NALA PROJECT:

These two projects envisage diversion of 7.56 TMC of water to Malaprabha


dam by construction of dam across the above nalas and diversion canals.
Administrative approval for these two projects is accorded by Government in
August 2000. Forest clearance for these projects is pending for want of CWC
clearance for the project. The in principle clearance given by CWC to these
projects has been kept in abeyance and inspite of repeated attempts by
Government of Karnataka, the Union Government has not been able to with
draw the order of abeyance on “IN PRINCIPLE CLEARANCE”

The KNNL Board has recommended in its 25th meeting held on 7.6.2005 to
take up works in non-forest area by entrusting the work to any Government
agency. Accordingly the Government vide its order No.JASAME 22 VEBYATA

The Chief Engineer, KNNL, Irrigation(North)Zone, Belgaum has submitted


an estimate of Rs.21.24 crores for construction of Kalasa Nala Dam and
approval has been accorded to the same.

Since the project is a inter-state dispute project and some time was required
for KSCC to take up works on tender basis, the works in non-forest areas
were taken-up by entrusting 2 works on piece work basis, each not
exceeding Rs.5.00 lakhs, in respect of Kalasa Nala diversion scheme.

In the meantime the Government vide Order No.WRD 36 VEBYATA 2006,


Bangalore dated 15.3.2007, has approved to execute the works of
Kalasanala diversion scheme in non-forest areas on piece work basis, till the
tendering process for balance work is completed.

In this order, Government has withdrawn the works entrusted to KSCC and
has instructed KNNL to proceed with tendering process for balance works
immediately duly following the prescribed procedure as per KTPP Act 1999.

Accordingly tender for the balance work of ICC from Kalasa to Malaprabha
River was invited and work is awarded and it is in progress.

Tenders are finalised for Phase–II of the balance work of ICC from Kalasa to
Malaprabha River (Earthwork and Box pushing technique) and works are in
progress.

12.5.6 RAJOLIBUNDA DIVERSION SCHEME:


The Rajolibanda Diversion Scheme(RDS) was constructed by the Erstwhile
Government of Hyderabad in 1947 .This scheme was planned to utilize the
water in catchment area flow & regenerated flows in the Tungabhadra river
171
below TB Dam, after utilization of ancient channels(i.e.VNC) & to irrigate
93,379 Acres with a canal on left side. The RDS is constructed as per the
agreement reached in the year 1944 between the madras state & Hyderabad
government.

After the reorganization of the states in the year 1956, the RDS head works
and first 27 miles of the canal with distributaries 1 to 14 are fall in the
territory of Karnataka State and remaining canal anddistributories in
Andhra Pradesh.

The canal runs for a length of 27 miles (42.60 Km) in Karnataka State and
remaining length of 62 miles in Andra Pradesh. There are 14 distributaries
in Karnataka State and the ayacut benefited is 5879.00 acres .The number
of distributaries in Andhra Pradesh is 22 and area benefited in Andhra
Pradesh is 87,500 acres.

The project was commenced in the year 1947. The anicut, distributaries
falling in Karnataka State are completed in the year 1958 and water is
letout in the canal during July 1958.

As the RDS main canal was designed to carry 850 cusecs at head and
Karnataka is to provide discharge of 770.00 cusecs at Andhra Pradesh
border (ie. At Km 42.60) after utilizing Karnataka share of 80 cusecs. But
due to disturbed lining accumulation of silt in bed and due to over topping
of water at certain banking reaches coming under Karnantaka State area
are in bad shape and also due to changes in hydraulic parameters of main
canal (as the canal was designed based on the parameters available during
the year 1947) it is not possible to draw more than 640 cusecs at head, So it
is possible to provide only 400-450 cusecs at AP border as against design
discharge of 770 cusecs. The Andhra Pradesh Government constituted
committee to look into the matter and to suggest remedial measures to
improve the flow conditions of the canal. Accordingly four modernisation
works takenup to improve the flow conditions of the canal.

Following 4 packages are takenup for modernization

1. Package-I Modernisation of RDS Anicut and head works.


2. Package-II Modernisation of RDS main canal from Km 0.00 to 15.00
including improvements to cD works.
3. Package-III Modernisation of RDS main canal from Km 15.00 to 30.0
including improvements to CD works.
4. Package-IV Modernisation of RDS main canal from Km 31.00 to 42.60
including improvements to CD works.

Package-III & IV are almost completed & Package-I & II are under progress.

Kannambaadi village in Srirangapattana Taluk of Mandya District, with Canals on both the
flanks for providing irrigation to an extent of 196000 acres (79312 Hectares) of Mandya and
Mysore District. The Left Bank High Level Canal, which is named as Vishweshvaraya
Canal was originally proposed for providing Irrigation to an extent of 120000 Acres (48,564
Hectares). However, due to various factors like construction of pickup channels, lowering of
local mounds in the command area, subsequent extension of certain branch canals etc., there
has been considerable increase in the command area of Vishweshvaraya Canal. This has
resulted in increased withdrawal in various branches, causing a strain on the canal system.
