There are about 31,563 tanks in the state. Due to various reasons, these tanks are in the verge of dilapidation. This has led to severe water shortage and adversely affected the environment and bio diversity. In order to safeguard these water bodies, Karnataka Legislature has enacted an Act during 2014 to establish Karnataka Tank Conservation and Development Authority. Under the Act, all the water bodies throughout the state, excluding those tanks within the Municipal and Corporation limits were brought under the ambit of the Authority. The Act was amended during 2018 to cover all those tanks also, which are within the limit of Municipal Corporation and Bangalore Development Authority.
 
The Hon’ble Chief Minister is the Chairman and the Hon’ble Minister for Minor Irrigation and Ground Water Development Department is the Vice Chairman of the Authority, with Principal Secretaries of various Departments, Commissioners of various Authorities and Chief Engineer are the members in the Board of the Authority.
