The dispute over Mahadayi river began in the 80s and grew stronger in the subsequent decades. It can soon turn into civil war if not handled with precaution. The Mahadayi River dispute between three states like Karnataka, Goa, and Maharashtra which has been going on since 2010 is yet to reach a final resolution.

Water is arguably one of the most important basic human rights. The trigger was Karnataka’s move to design a number of dams, canals and barrages to route the water from the Mahadayi river should enter basin of Malaprabha.
