    Karnataka helped Telangana during a water shortage crisis. The Telangana government received 2.25 TMC of water from Karnataka before the parliamentary elections. In March, Telangana requested water from Karnataka’s upper Krishna projects due to low water levels in reservoirs in the Krishna basin.

    The Karnataka government agreed to release water from the Narayanpur dam on Wednesday. It would take about two and a half days for the water to reach the Jurala project, covering a distance of 167 kilometers. Concerns about water loss during transmission were minimized this time because Karnataka had been providing water regularly to other projects nearby.

    Initially, Telangana had asked for 10 TMC of water from Karnataka, but Karnataka couldn’t provide it immediately due to their own water scarcity issues. After a second request for at least 5 TMC, Karnataka agreed to help after assessing their own water needs for the next three months. Officials from both states met in Bengaluru to discuss the water transfer.
