NGT reiterates urgency in cleaning Ganga

A Bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel said: “One of the projects to check pollution of the Ganga is installation of STPs at Haridwar with enhanced capacity… According to the compliance affidavit, the work is likely to be completed by February 2020. Having regard to significance and urgency, it will be appropriate that effort is made to prepone the commissioning of the said project up to June 2019.”The Bench also suggested an “online mechanism for display of water quality” at points where drains enter the river.The observations came while the green panel was hearing a plea pertaining to the cleaning of the Ganga. In July this year, the NGT had come down heavily on authorities stating that no effective steps had been taken to clean the river. A series of directions were also issued.
