The meeting was held in Hyderabad on July 15, following the central government issuing a gazette delegating all projects on the river to the KRMB. The decision was taken by the central government as both Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states are fighting over sharing of the river water.

The AP government has decided to hand over the Srisailam Right Bank power house and the Nagarjuna Sagar right canal power house to the KRMB. The two power houses, which were kept with Andhra Pradesh at the time of bifurcation in 2014, would now go to the KRMB, for operation.
