The apex Court will be hearing the case based on an application, which is filed by Karnataka seeking a direction to reduce the quantity of water, which is to be released from the Cauvery River to Tamil Nadu from 15,000 cusecs to 1,000 cusecs.
This application has also sought that instead of 10 days, the apex Court should be further restricting the release of water to only six, because the state itself was facing a distress situation due to a massive agitation which was has caused a loss of Rs. 500 crore per day to Karnataka.
