Overview:

“The present book fills a void in legal literature with great aplomb. Not only is this book the only compendium of all laws relatable to inter State river water disputes, but it is also a commentary on the relevant constitutional and statutory provisions. It is contained in five chapters. The book has several Appendices which comprehensively put together all the documents that deal with the subject. There is no doubt in my mind that this book will become a locus classicus on the subject.” 
Extract from the Foreword by Justice Rohinton F. Nariman, Judge, Supreme Court of India

The study of Inter-State River Water Disputes in India is marked by a strange paradox. While the number of inter-state river water disputes has increased over the decades since the enactment of Inter-State River Water Disputes Act, 1956 ("the Act of 1956") and the Inter-State River Water Disputes Rules, 1959, there is no comprehensive commentary on either the Act or the Rules. 

This book fills the void by contextualizing the Act of 1956 through a detailed section by section analysis of it. It is primed towards catering to the needs of the legal practitioner by providing an analysis of each provision of the Act of 1956 and the Rules of 1959. It aims to be a handy reference book for the practicing lawyer and law student and hopefully for government officials and academics looking for a starting point in dealing with the Act of 1956 and the Rules of 1959.

It is contained in five chapters. The book has several Appendices which comprehensively put together all the documents that deal with the subject.

Extract from the Foreword by Justice Rohinton F. Nariman, Judge, Supreme Court of India

“This book will fill the void on the subject and does it with stupendous scholarship and thoughtful comments with all the relevant constitutional and statutory materials involved to make it self-contained. I have no doubt it will be of great assistance to every one associated with water disputes, particularly lawyers.”
Justice A.M. Ahmadi, Former Chief Justice of India

“Undoubtedly, it is much needed book on the subject which was not covered so far by any author ….. (It) clearly show the hard work which has been very sincerely put in by you in authoring this work, which I can say is quite informative and elaborate. It will benefit all those who are concerned with the subject in whatever capacity it may be.”
Justice Brijesh Kumar, Former Judge, Supreme Court of India and Chairman, Krishna Water Disputes Tribunal

"Having regard to the times we are living in, especially, when there is much strife vis-Ã -vis water resources, both within the country and outside, this book appears to be one, which would be useful both, for judges and practitioners. ... It is a scholarly work and, yet, not unnecessarily prolix in its contents."
Justice Rajiv Shakdher, Judge, Delhi High Court

“The book is a compendium of all the statutes on the subject, its evolution, judicial pronouncements and the principles involved, which having been authored by the person having deep personal knowledge on the subject, will definitely be a treasure to any person dealing with the subject. With the freshness of thought, clarity of diction, the style and the flair of the language used, it appears to be more of a piece of literature, than a compendium of legal provisions. The considerable effort taken by you in bringing out a book of this quality merits appreciation.”
Justice Sunil Thomas, Judge, High Court of Kerala

“I am glad you have written on the subject which is of growing importance with unending Inter-State water disputes in our country.” 
Mr. P.P. Rao, Senior Advocate, Supreme Court of India

“One could understand the enormous effort involved in bringing out a treatise on this subject of national importance.”
Mr. S.S. Javali, Senior Advocate, Supreme Court of India

"...excellent book on Interstate Water Disputes. It will be very useful for lawyers and judges."
T.R. Andhyarujina, Senior Advocate, Supreme Court of India

“Your book strikes out on its own with perceptive analysis to deal with practical intimidations. It is not a one off book but contains the possibilities of being an authoritative text as it transits into future editions.”
Dr. Rajeev Dhavan, Senior Advocate, Supreme Court of India

“The get-up is superb, printing excellent and the content (the portions that I glanced through) most relevant and useful. This child of yours, to quote late Justice Tek Chand of our High Court, is “immortal”. It will live on beyond you and me.”
Mr. M.L. Sarin, Senior Advocate, High Court for the States of Punjab & Haryana at Chandigarh

“….. it is a scholarly work on a subject on which not much treatise is available.”
Mr. Amarjit Singh Chandhiok, Senior Advocate & former Additional Solicitor General of India

“Your book is a crystallization of the vast experience gained in handling water disputes in the last three decades, yet the reader would definitely find a dispassionate approach on complicated questions considered in the book. The chapters on Genesis and Evolution, I am sure, would make a lasting contribution to the literature on the subject.”
Mr. Mohan V. Katarki, Advocate, Supreme Court

Mr. K.K. Lahiri in his book "Inter-State River Water Disputes Act, Genesis, Evolution and Analysis" has summarised the laws prevalent in India conerning the rights of the States in the running and flowing waters of inter-State rivers collecting it from various Reports submitted by different Water Disputes Tribunals like Ravi and Beas Water Tribunal, NArmada Water Disputes Tribunal and Report of the Indus Commission.- Vansadhara Tribunal’s  Report of September 2017
