Massive rural sanitation drive by NMCG helps clean Ganga
Thu, Jul 18, 2019
Few miles from Haridwar city, Ajitpur is one among 4,465 villages located on the Ganga river basin which have been identified by the National Mission for Clean Ganga as part of its Ganga Rejuvenation plan. There are millions of households located in these villages where a massive drive for rural sanitation has been launched with an aim to develop them as model villages so that the waste does not flow into the holy river. Namami Gange has joined hands with the Department of Drinking Water and Sanitation, Ministry of Jal Shakti to make these villages Open Defecation Free (ODF) by constructing over 11 lakh independent toilets. In the process, the `households without toilets’ were identified by panchayats and subsequently, a cash subsidy for construction was provided as per the approved government scheme.
NMCG lays stress on cleaning tributaries of Ganga
Thu, Jul 04, 2019
Rising in the Himalayas and flowing to the Bay of Bengal, Ganga traverses a course of more than 2,500 km through the plains of north and eastern India. Serving as one of India’s holiest rivers, Ganga is joined by Ramganga, Gomti, Ghaghara, Gandak, Kosi and Mahananda from left bank and Yamuna, Tamsa, Son and Punpun from right bank. Ganga can’t be clean unless its tributaries are clean. Under the Namami Gange programme, the government has initiated several major projects to clean Ganga and its tributaries. The Yamuna, the western most and the longest tributary of the Ganga, has its source in the Yamunotri glacier on the western slopes of Banderpunch range. It joins the Ganga at Prayag and holds 40.2 per cent of the entire Ganges Basin. To preserve people’s faith in the purity of the river, the National Mission for Clean Ganga under its Namami Gange programme has been taking significant steps towards keeping the holy waters of Yamuna clean from sewage generated in cities falling along its course.
