A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra said it will consider the suggestions given by all stakeholders while finalising the Cauvery scheme.

"We need to examine whether the said scheme is in consonance with our (February 16) judgment", the bench, which also comprised Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud, had said. But the draft scheme says it could be either an engineer or an official. On May 15, the court had rejected the Karnataka government's request to delay the finalisation of the scheme.

The apex court has asked the centre to modify a provision in the scheme that authorises the Union government to issue directions "from time to time "on Cauvery water distribution between four riparian states, Tamil Nadu Kerala and Puducherry".

While Tamil Nadu has insisted on calling the scheme the Cauvery Management Board, the Centre maintained that it was fine with any nomenclature- Board, Authority or Committee.

The winners of the Europa League are awarded direct qualification for next season's Champions League group stage. "It was a dream of mine to win this trophy with my teammates and with Simeone ", the France forward said.

"All the states concerned are making submissions to the draft scheme".

The Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected Karnataka's plea to adjourn hearings in the Cauvery water sharing case to July on the grounds that there was no government in the state following Tuesday's assembly election results. In its verdict on February 16, the Supreme Court had reduced Tamil Nadu's share of water from the river Cauvery while Karnataka's part got a boost.

The SC had also directed Centre to change the headquarters from Bengaluru to Delhi and also added that no more dams can be built across Cauvery river. The Centre had faced severe flak from political parties in Tamil Nadu for missing its six-week deadline.
