Bengaluru: Tamil Nadu has been opposing the Mekedatu project alleging that it will deny Cauvery river water to it, the state government has submitted the detailed project report ( DPR) of the Mekedatu project to Central Water Commission ( CWC).

As per the DRP report submitted by the government, the total cost of the project will cost Rs 5,900 crore. 

This project to build a balancing reservoir at Mekedatu across River Cauvery will not only help to store excess water generated in Cauvery basin in Karnataka but also produce electricity.

It may be recalled that the CWC, nodal agency of the Union Ministry of Water Resources, had cleared the pre-feasibility report submitted by the Karnataka government and asked the state to prepare the DPR. 

Tamil Nadu had filed a petition in the Supreme Court opposing the project. The apex court which refused to grant a stay for preparing DPR has issued notices to the Water Resources Ministry, Karnataka government seeking reply to Tamil Nadu’s plea.
