|2. Inter-State Councils
|3. Zonal Councils
|Select the correct answer using the codes given below.
A) 1 and 2 only
B) 2 only
C) 2 and 3 only
Correct Answer: B
Solution :[b] River water tribunals are setup under an act and therefore are not constitutional. Article 262 of the Constitution provides for the adjudication of inter-state water disputes. Under this provision, the Parliament has enacted the Inter-State Water Disputes Act (1956). The Inter-State Water Disputes Act empowers the Central government to setup an ad hoc tribunal for the adjudication of a dispute between two or more states in relation to the waters of an inter-state river or river valley. Inter-State Councils are constitutional body under article 263. Zonal councils were setup under the State reorganisation act, 1956 and are thus not constitutional.
