Prayagraj Kumbh 2019: NGT bans commercial activities within 100 metres of Ganga

This Kumbh mela 2019, the central and state agencies are ready to make Ganga pollution-free through controlling pollution. It will take hard measures to control and monitor activities near Ganga River to ensure it would be clean and safe. A new and green initiative to save Ganga announced by the National Green Tribunal (NGT). In order to make Ganga river pollution-free, National Green tribunal has banned all kinds of commercial and development activities within the range of 100 meters near Ganga. This decision was taken by National Green Tribunal between Bijnor and Unnao-Kanpur region. The National Green tribunal has taken this great green initiative so that our holy Ganga River can be saved from the high-amount of pollution.

“No Development / No Construction Zone”

To stand firm on its decision, now the area within the 100 meters of River Ganga is called as the “No Development / No Construction Zone”. The commercial activities along with leasing, auction, encroachments, and anti-pollution activities; everything that cause harm to the river Ganga are banned by National Green Tribunal. If any party is involved in doing such kind of activities within the defined range near River Ganga, that will be considered as illegal. Furthermore, issuance of NOC regarding any development plan within the defined range has now prohibited. In order to continue with this project, and to ensure the proper compliance of directives and standards, the National Green Tribunal has designated UP irrigation and urban development departments as the nodal agencies.

Monitoring of activities at state level

The monitoring of activities and proper implementation will be done at state level. Every month a meeting will be held to review all activities and directives. It will be the responsibility of the District Magistrates to ensure proper implementation of directives in a standard manner.
Now the respective authorities of the region can take actions against those squatters who do not remove their encroachments willingly. Moreover, NGT also has given directions to the Central Pollution control Board to impose ‘environmental compensation’ penalty of Rs 50,000 per day on those factories who are adhering the pollution norms.
