SC hears Cauvery water dispute & highway liquor ban cases today

The Supreme Court will on Wednesday continue hearing the Cauvery water dispute involving the tussle between Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.

The apex court yesterday commenced final hearing on the appeals filed by Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Kerala against the 2007 Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal (CWDT) final award.

A bench of the apex court, headed by Justice Dipak Misra, had earlier directed the Karnataka Government to provide 200 cusecs of Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu till its further order.

The Supreme Court will on Wednesday hear various petitions by several states seeking clarification on its order banning sale of liquor along national and state highways.

The apex court yesterday refused to hear all private Intervention Applications (IAs) in the liquor ban case.

The Supreme Court had earlier upheld the Chandigarh administration order denotifying highways to enable functioning of liquor ban within 500 metres distance.

The timing and legality on the case would be decided later when the order comes.
