  4. What is Mekedatu Project? *Mekedatu, is a deep gorge situated at the confluence of the rivers Cauvery and Arkavathi, about 100 km from Bengaluru, at the Kanakapura taluk in Karnataka's Ramanagara district. In 2013, then Karnataka announced the construction of a multi-purpose balancing reservoir project over the Mekedatu with an aims to alleviate the drinking water problems of Bengaluru and Ramanagara district. It is also expected to generate hydro-electricity to meet the power needs of the state


  6. Why does Tamil Nadu object? Soon after the project was announced in 2013, then Tamil Nadu Government raised the obiection over dam because it will affect the natural flow of the river Cauvery considerably and will severelv affect the irrigation in Tamil Nadu Tamil Nadu stated that the construction of a reservoir would be against the principles of federalism because in a federal structure, no upper riparian State can unilaterally interfere with the natural flow of an inter State river without the consent and concurrence of the lower riparian State Tamil Nadu's stand was that the project would not only impede the water available to farmers in the state but it would also go against the mandate that the total quantity of water must be for consumptive use, as prescribed by the Tribunal

  7. Karnataka's Arguments . Karnataka argues that Mekedatu project will not come in the way of releasing the stipulated quantum of water to Tamil Nadu,nor will it be used or irrigation purposes . Karnataka is willing to hold talks with Tamil Nadu on this issue

  8. Karnataka's Arguments . Karnataka has again made it clear that the reservoir is only for storing water meant to generate electricity and provide drinking water to Bengaluru as well as its Neighbouring areas
