The Rajasthan government argued that the dam was being built as per the agreement made in 2005. If the submergence area of ​​the dam and barrage under the project does not fall within the boundary of another state, then in such cases the consent of the state is not necessary. Madhya Pradesh government did not give NOC for ERCP. The Rajasthan government decided to complete the ERCP at its own expense.
