Sewage discharge is no longer allowed in Ganga

The Dream of a Clean Ganga is becoming true soon. Sewage discharge is no longer allowed in River Ganga in Varanasi.

Varanasi, the holy city is one of the oldest cities in the country. At the same time, it is the most congested city due to the visit of several tourists.

But, now it is going to become clean with the green initiative taken by the government.

Not only River Ganga, but almost all the holy rivers in the country are being polluted with the discharge of pollutants.


People in India worship rivers in the country. At the same, they pollute rivers with their beliefs of mixing body ashes, conducting religious rituals at the ghats of rivers and disposing all that garbage into the rivers.

Not only that, bathing, washing cloths and animals are also being done. All these reasons are polluting the rivers.

In this context, the government wants to protect the rivers from pollution. Under Namami Gange Project, River Ganga is intended to be saved. The project is aimed to be completed by 2020.

A sewage treatment plant would be established with the capacity of 50 MLD at Rammana to process the polluted water coming from the Assi river. It is one of the main sources of pollution in the Ganga.

The sewage treatment capacity of Varanasi would be raised to 400 million litres per day by July this year. It is considered as an enormous development.

Apart from that, the ghats and other structures would also be cleaned for the cleanliness of the entire city.

Cleaning drive would also be done in 94 different ghats in four other cities of Uttar Pradesh including Bithoor, Kanpur, Vrindavan in Mathura and Prayagraj.

People can see clean Ganga after the completion of the project.
