This Board is constituted to take decisions by mutual understanding for irrigation projects such as Lendi, Pranhita and Lower Painganga, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said.
"Telangana CM KC Rao termed this agreement as historic and thanked me for taking this decision to move ahead together," Fadnavis tweeted.
Irrigation Ministers of both states-- Girish Mahajan (Maharashtra) and Harish Rao (Telangana)-- and Chief Secretaries of both states were present on the occasion.
The agreement on setting up an inter-state water board on Godavari projects, is expected to end decades of discord between the two states on utilisation of water in the river Godavari and its tributaries, an official release said.
