The dispute over sharing Cauvery waters dates back to the British era,,,,,The dispute between Karnataka and Tamil Nadu over sharing Cauvery neared a solution when the two warring sides, Mysore princely state and Madras Presidency reached an agreement in 1924. Mysore was permitted to build a dam at Kannambadi village to trap 44.8 thousand million cubic feet of water. The agreement was to be valid for 50 years and a review thereafter was part of the agreement Not willing to accept the agreement ,, the two states had taken the issue to SC after independence.
