Amaravati: In the absence of agreement between the AP and Telangana on key issues, the Krishna River Management Board (KRMB), the Reservoir Management Committee, has decided to hold another round of talks with both the states before finalizing the Rule Curve (allocation of Krishna waters between the two states).The RMC will convene the next meeting in the third week of August, after which the findings will be presented to the entire board of KRMB.Following a request from Telangana, RMC has agreed to report the number of floodwaters going surplus into AP.RMC, on the other hand, refused to include the entirety of the AP's water supply because it was against the tribunal order.

RMC, headed by KRMB member Ravi Kumar Pillai, has encouraged both the states to utilize the power generation stations as required and convenient for them.RMC, on a request from Andhra Pradesh, decided to extend the flood season from June 1 to October 31.This will keep Srisailam's water levels at a maximum 854 feet during the monsoon season.Both states are fighting over how to maintain the water levels in the Srisailam scheme, as TS is aiming for 834 ft, against the CWC's requirement of 854 ft.

Officials in Telangana argued that the Srisailam project was originally intended as a hydroelectric power plant and would scale to 834 feet for electricity production.Since it is a contentious issue, RMC should not make a final decision.We will note down the minutes and demands of both states and present them to the board (KRMB) for consideration in the final decision.According to RMC convenor Pillai, we will also record the CWCs' directives in the minutes.

Because water is being divided in the same amount, the AP also claimed that they were entitled to receive 66% of the electricity generated by the Srisailam and Nagarjuna Sagar projects.
