New Delhi, February 16  The Supreme Court today raised the 270 thousand million cubic feet (tmcft) share of Cauvery waters for Karnataka by 14.75 tmcft and reduced Tamil Nadu’s share while compensating it by allowing extraction of 10 tmcft groundwater from the river basin, saying the issue of drinking water has to be placed on a “higher pedestal”. The court, which referred to international rules of Helsinki, Compione and Berlin on equitable distribution of river waters passing through various nations, said that river was a national asset and no state could claim “exclusive ownership” of such waters. (Follow  The Tribune on Facebook ; and  Twitter @thetribunechd ) “The waters of an inter-state river passing through the corridors of riparian states constitute national asset and cannot be said to be located in any one state. Being in a state of flow, no state can claim exclusive ownership of such waters or assert a prescriptive right so as to deprive the other states of their equitable share,” a three-judge ...
