New Delhi: The office of the Supreme Court Monday made public that an application had been moved by the Chhattisgarh government on the inter-state dispute regarding the Mahanadi River.
The Chhattisgarh government has now moved an application telling the Supreme Court its stand on resolving the inter-state dispute through the constitution of a Joint Control Board (JCB) as envisioned in the 1983 Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between the Orissa government and undivided Madhya Pradesh in 1983 on joint projects.
The case is now scheduled to be heard Tuesday (today). During the last hearing the court had asked the Union government why they have not notified the formation of a Tribunal even after completion of an year after receiving an application from the Orissa government under the Inter-State River Water Disputes Act.
The stand taken by the Chhattisgarh government and the Union government and the demand of the Orissa government for a Tribunal will be heard by a two-judge SC bench Tuesday. The same has been listed as Item No: 10 for the day.
