Clean Ganga: Modi to meet chief ministers of five states today

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will chair the fifth meeting of the National Ganga River Basin Authority (NGRBA) on Thursday.

The chief ministers of five states including Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, West Bengal, Bihar and Jharkhand, who are also the members of Authority would be attending the meeting today.

The Prime Minister is the ex-officio Chairman of NGRBA.

The last meeting of the Authority was held on October 27 previous year, which was chaired by Union Water Resources Minister Uma Bharti.

NGRBA, constituted in 2009, is an empowered planning, financing, monitoring and coordinating authority for river Ganga, for which the Centre has given thrust on cleaning up.

The objective of the Authority is to ensure effective abatement of pollution and conservation of the river Ganga by adopting a holistic approach with the river basin as the unit of planning.

The functions of the Authority includes all measures necessary for planning and execution of programmes for abatement of pollution in the Ganga in keeping with sustainable development needs.

NGRBA, which was functioning under the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, was transferred to the Ministry of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation in 2014.

This paved the way for the Ministry of Water Resources to look after all issues related to conservation, development management and abatement of pollution in river Ganga and its tributaries.
