Ganga Gram Yojana

Ganga is the Indian national river and it is also the longest river flowing in India. It originates from Himalayas from the state of Uttarakhand and has a stretch of 2525 km. It ends its journey at the Bay of Bengal.

The villages and cities located along river Ganga depend on it for their day to day livelihood. But according to international surveys, Ganga is the one of the most polluted rivers of the world.

A large number of villages, town and cities situated along the banks of Ganga dump their daily wastes in it. All household sewerages, industrial waste drains, etc. are linked to this river Ganga, thus polluting the holy river. There is a huge difference between the quality and color of water at the time it reaches the Bay of Bengal, from the time it gets originated.

Hence, as a major initiative towards fast track implementation of Namami Gange Programme, Union Minister of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation has launched Ganga Gram Yojana at Village Puth in Hapur district of U.P.

Salient features of Ganga Gram Yojana:

  1. 1600 villages situated along the banks of river Ganga will be developed under this scheme.
  2. In these villages open drains falling into river Ganga will be diverted and alternative arrangements for sewage treatment will be made.
  3. The villages will have toilets in every household.
  4. These villages will be developed under the Sichewal model. Sichewal is situated in Punjab, where cooperation of the villagers has been solicited for the water management and waste disposal in a meticulous way.
