The Committee on Allocation of Natural Resources (CANR) under the Chairmanship of Shri Ashok Chawla hasinteralia recommended that “the Committee sees an urgent need to have a comprehensive national legislation on water. This can be either done through bringing water under the Concurrent List and then framing the appropriate legislation; or, by obtaining consensus from a majority of the States that such a “framework law” is necessary and desirable as a Union enactment”. As per the report of the Committee on allocation of Natural Resources, the National law needs to define the position on riparian rights, so as to resolve inter-State disputes amicably.

This information was given by the Minister of State for Water Resources & Minority Affairs Shri Vincent H. Pala in a written reply to a question in Lok Sabha
