?Even in the case of its predecessor, the Cauvery River Authority
(1998-2013) with the Prime Minister as the Chairman and Chief
Ministers of the basin States as Members, the Union Ministry of Water
Resources had administrative control.
?Besides, there are eight inter-State river water boards under the
Jal Shakti Ministry.
?Apart from meeting the procedural requirement, the notification
does not, in any way, alter the character, functions or powers of
the CWMA that form part of a scheme drawn up a few years ago, and
which was approved by the Supreme Court.
?Even two years after its formation, the Authority does not have a
full-fledged chairman.
