Namami Gange to Clean 80 Per Cent of Ganga By 2019

Eighty per cent of Ganga River would be cleaned by 2019 through the execution of numerous schemes under the Namami Gange programme. The Union Minister for Water Resources, River Development, and Ganga Rejuvenation, Shri Nitin Gadkari said that 10 cities have been identified, which contribute the most in the pollution of Ganga with Kanpur topping the chart. Accordingly, Bihar and Uttar Pradesh government have been asked to ensure zero discharge from sugar factories, paper mills, and other industrial units, which lead to high discharge of pollutants in the river. Eighteen new towns on Yamuna and its tributaries (Hindon and Kali) have been identified for pollution abatement.
