The state would go through the draft to ascertain the pros and cons in the draft filed by the centre and will subsequently file its counter, he said recalling that TN was legally restoring its right over cauvery due to the efforts taken by the late AIADMK leaders MGR and Jayalalithaa.

A bench, comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud, took on record the draft scheme submitted by the Union water resource secretary and said it would peruse it.

Earlier, the Centre had placed before the SC, a draft of the Cauvery management scheme for the smooth sharing of Cauvery water between four states. Asked whether the state government would accept Cauvery Water Regulation Committee (CWRC), Palaniswami said his government wouldn't compromise on anything less than the Cauvery Management Board. Thereafter, the scheme will need to be approved by the apex court. "The authority will on June 1 every year determine the total residual storage in the specified reservoirs as it is not possible to know season-wise river flows". The scheme was the only relief in the judgment for the state, which reduced its water share from to 177.25 tmc ft from 192 tmc ft.
