    Question now is, will there be an appeal. Next is if Telangana is formed, will there be another round of disputes?

    Apparently Karnataka seems to be the only party completely satisfied with the tribunal's award,the decision favoring increasing the height of the Almaty dam come as a shot in the arm for Karnataka.Going for another round of appeals would be a ridiculous waste time.
