The meeting of the Cauvery Monitoring Committee (CMC) came after the Supreme Court on Wednesday asked the multi-state panel to meet within the next two days to decide water requirement of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.

Kerala and Pudducherry are the other two member states of CMC which is headed by Union Secretary, Water Resources.

"It would seem equitable if Karnataka should manage water in such a way that Tamil Nadu receives 12 Thousand Million Cubic (TMC) feet during the month of December, 2012," the Committee said in its interim award.
