The court had yesterday thrown out the government's appeal for another delay, citing elections in Karnataka, and had ordered that the draft be submitted in 24 hours.

A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A.M. Khanwilkar and D.Y. Chandrachud adjourned the matter till Thursday for further hearing on the Centre's scheme for implementation of the February 16 judgment of the apex court on the allocation of water.

"We only wanted to know whether the draft scheme is in consonance with the February 16 verdict". It suggested amendments to the Centre's proposed scheme particularly to the provision that allows for the Centre to have the final say, if the orders of the proposed Cauvery River Board or Authority were not complied with by any of the basin states that include Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Puducherry and Kerala. Senior advocate Shyam Divan, appearing for the Karnataka government, today submitted suggestions to be dealt while finalising the Cauvery scheme.

The CMB would be headquartered in Delhi while the office of the regulatory authority would be in Bengaluru.

According to a report published in Hindustan Times, the Kerala government has also demanded that the control of dams and reservoirs should lie with the states as opposed to the Cauvery Management Board.

The top court had modified the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal (CWDT) award of 2007 and made it clear that it will not be extending time for this on any ground.

The Supreme Court Thursday reserved its order on finalisation of the Cauvery Management Scheme which will deal with the smooth distribution of water among four southern riparian states.

Karnataka and Tamil Nadu have fought over the river for more than a century now.
