KEEP GANGA CLEAN

The Allahabad High Court has ordered closure of all industrial units on the banks of the river Ganga in the state which had not installed effluent treatment plants. A division bench comprising Justice K D Sahi directed the State Pollution Control Board to report compliance of the order to the court. The court was responding to a petition filed by Rakesh Kumar Jaiswal of Echo Groups, Kanpur. The Bench asked the government to constitute a high-powered committee to look into the growing pollution in Ganga.
