Over the previous three and a half years, every dispatch sent by the State to the krishna river Management Board (KRMB) featured a compelling subject line urging immediate attention. When it came to the problems of water sharing it was facing, officials in the irrigation Department were wisely tenacious.
Of course, every message from them would be given top attention. But the majority of the time, the reaction was muted. Since february 2020, the State has written to the KRMB as much as 70 times. The letters mostly dealt with seven important subjects. However, it failed in its attempts to mobilise the Board. Since it received river waters as part of its riparian share, the state had long been careful in how it used them. The riparian state may carry over a portion of its share of water to the next water year in accordance with the requirements of Scheme-A of allocation set down by the krishna Waters Disputes Tribunal (KWDT-I).

The state has pleaded with the KRMB to permit the facility for a very long time. letter nos. 3, 4, 5, 8, 10, 11, 14, 19, 20, 24, 32, 35, and 52 from Engineer-in-Chief (General) C. muralidhar to the KRMB are among the 13 letters he sent on the matter.

The board chose to be evasive despite the fact that it must properly address the matter in accordance with the rules established by the Tribunal. On the other side, Andhra was drawing more water than its fair share from the waters telangana had stored to meet its demands. The working agreement for sharing krishna water between telangana and andhra pradesh was a crucial problem. The KWDT-1 made en bloc allocations to the former undivided state, while the KWDT-II will decide on project-specific allocations.

The water sharing agreements that were granted in 2015 and 2017 are simply temporary agreements that will last for one water year. The state had made it abundantly plain to the KRMB that it had a right to 70% of the water from the krishna River.
