KRMB To Discuss Water Sharing Between Telangana And AP On March 13

Hyderabad, Mar 11 (Maxim News): The three-member committee of the Krishna River Management Board (KRMB) will be met on March 13 to discuss water-sharing issues between Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.

the last meeting of the committee scheduled for February 18 was canceled as AP officials failed to appear before the Board. While Telangana has been demanding to share Krishna water in the ratio of 50:50, Andhra Pradesh is demanding that its share be increased to 70 per cent.

It may be recalled that in the year 2015, KRMB allocated water sharing between Telangana and Andhra Pradesh (299 TMC to Telangana and 512 TMC to Andhra Pradesh), based on relevant basin parameters like cultivable area within the basin, drought-prone areas, and population within the basin. Telangana is demanding an allocation of over 574.6 TMC which is 75 percent of dependable flows of river Krishna which is the cause of dispute between the two states. (Maxim News)
