A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud will hear the Central government's plea on April 9 after its counsel referred to divergent views of the concerned states on the issue of setting up of the scheme.
"We will take this matter on April 9 along with the plea of Tamil Nadu," the bench said, when the Centre's counsel Wasim Qadri sought urgent hearing of the plea.
The top court, in its verdict, had asked the Centre to formulate a scheme to ensure compliance of its 465-page judgement on the decades-old Cauvery dispute. It modified the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal or CWDT award of 2007 and made it clear that it will not be extending time for this on any ground.
With the top court's verdict, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala and Union Territory of Puducherry would be annually entitled to 404.25 tmcft, 284.75 tmcft, 30 tmcft and 7 tmcft of Cauvery water respectively out of the total of 740 tmcft.
