The Chief Secretaries of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala and Puducherry besides officials of the Central Water Commission will attend the meeting, official sources said. While the Tamil Nadu government had approached the Committee yesterday with its demand for more water, the Karnataka government too wrote to the panel with its grievances on releases of water.

The Supreme Court had on Monday directed the Karnataka government to release 15,000 cusecs of Cauvery river water every day to Tamil Nadu for next 10 days to meet the demands of the summer crop in the state. The bench also said that Tamil Nadu in turn would proportionately give water to Puducherry and gave Tamil Nadu three days' time to approach the Committee with its claim of 35 tmcft of water from Karnataka.

The court gave three days' time to Karnataka to respond to the plea by Tamil Nadu, while asking the Cauvery Supervisory Committee to examine the matter in four days and pass appropriate directions. The apex court will hear the matter again on September 16.
