National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG), popularly known as Namami Gange, is now focusing on cleaning the tributaries of river Ganga in a multipronged manner.


In its recent 18th Executive Committee meeting, NMCG approved projects worth Rs 841 crore on Ganga tributaries in Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal alone.


Now, the sanctioned expenditure of all sewerage projects on these tributaries has touched Rs 5,735 crore. A total of 30 sewerage projects have been sanctioned on tributaries in Uttarakhand, UP, Bihar, Jharkhand, WB, Haryana, Delhi and Himachal Pradesh.


The committee also approved an STP project on Ganga in Bihar totalling Rs 41.36 crore. UP projects have been approved in Bareilly, Muzaffarnagar and Budhana at a total cost of Rs 552 crore.


Besides, an action plan is being worked out for the use of reclaimed water. In line with the holistic approach adopted by NMCG, treated waste water is to be used either in agriculture or industry. The respective states have been asked to workout proposals for re-use in each project.
