This article is presented to highlight the topic Namami Gange project and its present status in India. It further discusses how many sewage treatment plants have been installed under the Namami Gange projects in different cities.
Launched in 2014 by the Union Government as a flagship program, Namami Gange is an integrated conservation mission launched to conserve the Environment. The main objectives of this project were to effectively reduce pollution, preserve, and rejuvenate the national river Ganga.
An umbrella program seeks to integrate the previous and ongoing initiatives to increase efficiency and coordination with the conservation and cleanliness of our national river Ganga. The Central Government is coordinating with the state government to address the issue of pollution of Ganga by giving financial support. Around 500 million wastewater is dumped directly into river Ganga without any treatment. This is a huge concern that needs to be addressed as soon as possible.
The project is being operated by the Department of Water Resources, River Development, and Ganga Rejuvenation under the Ministry of Jal Shakti and implemented by the National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG) and the state counterpart organizations State program management groups. Also, you should know that NMCG is the implementation wing of the National Ganga Council that was set up in 2016 to replace the National Ganga river basin authority.
The project has been centrally funded in 20000 crores with nearly 288 projects in it. The main pillars under this project are here as follows:
- 1. Sewage treatment infrastructure
- 2. River-Surface Cleaning
- 3. Ganga Gram
- 4. Biodiversity
- 5. Industrial Effluent Monitoring
- 6. River-Front Development
- 7. Afforestation
- 8. Public Awareness
The Namami Gange Project would be implemented into three levels based on activities:
- 1. Entry-level activities need to be implemented immediately to have a visible impact.
- 2. Medium-term actions that need to be implemented within five years.
- 3. Long-term activities that need to be implemented within ten years.
According to the National Mission for Clean Ganga website, 68 sewage treatment plants have been completed in Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Uttrakhand, Bihar, Jharkhand, West Bengal, Delhi, Rajasthan, and Himachal Pradesh. Apart from it, 69 sewage treatment management projects have been under implementation. Around 18 projects have been under tender, and three new sewage treatment plants(STP Plants) were launched. Also, the sewage treatment plant with the capacity of 4949.05 (MLD) is under construction.
In a total of seven years since the launch of projects, NMCG data shows that out of 341 projects of sewage treatment, 147 (43%) of the projects have been completed. The construction of sewage treatment plants has been under construction. The process to rejuvenate, clean, and conserve the National river Ganga will be completed soon.
