    The Union Cabinet, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has approved the issue of further Terms of Reference (ToR) to the existing Krishna Water Disputes Tribunal-II (KWDT-II) under the ISRWD Act. This is to resolve the dispute between Telangana and Andhra Pradesh regarding the use, distribution, or control of Krishna river waters. The resolution of this dispute will benefit both states and contribute to the country’s overall development.

    The KWDT-II was established in 2004 to address water disputes between states. When Telangana became a separate state in 2014, the tenure of KWDT-II was extended to address the clauses of the Andhra Pradesh Reorganization Act. Telangana filed a complaint in 2014, referring to the dispute on Krishna river waters. In 2018, they requested the complaint be referred to KWDT-II, focusing only on Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. The matter was discussed in a meeting in 2020, and Telangana withdrew its writ petition in 2021. The Ministry of Law & Justice was consulted for legal opinion.
