Cauvery row: SC reduces amount of water Karnataka has to release to Tamil Nadu to 12,000 cusecs/day

The Supreme Court on Monday reduced the amount of water Karnataka has to release to Tamil Nadu, to 12,000 cusecs a day from the earlier ordered 15,000 cusecs a day. 

The court's modified order directed Karnataka to release the water until September 20. Earlier on Monday, the Karnataka government requested the apex court to suspend its order directing Karnataka to release Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu, because the latter isn't having a water crisis. 

The "agony claimed by Tamil Nadu on the water crisis" doesn't exist, the Karnataka government told the court. The SC refused to suspend that order.
