In a step towards resolving the long-pending dispute between Odisha and Chhattisgarh over water of river Mahanadi, the Supreme Court has directed the Centre to constitute within a month a tribunal for its adjudication.

A bench of Justice SA Bobde and Justice L Nageswara Rao ordered that the tribunal be constituted under Section 4(1) of the Inter-State River Water Disputes Act, 1956. With this, the suit initiated by Odisha has been returned to be presented before the tribunal. 

The state of Odisha had moved the apex court seeking grant of an injunction restraining Chhattisgarh from continuing with the construction and operation of the six ongoing industrial barrages, namely Samoda, Seorinarayan, Basantpur, Mirouni, Saradiha and Kalma, pending constitution of the tribunal.
