This is the compliance statement for the order passed by the Hon'ble Tribunal dated 05-02-2014 the details of Grossly Polluting Industries (GPI) operating in 5 Ganga states. There are 764 grossly polluting industries in the five States on the main stem of the Ganga and its tributaries which are marring the water quality in the rivers, the Centre and its Ministry of Environment & Forests have said while expressing hope that their Gangetic Dolphin Conservation Plan together with Mission Clean Ganga would yield favourable results. In an affidavit filed before the National Green Tribunal, which is hearing a petition filed by Krishnakant Singh highlighting the pollution being caused in the Ganga by Simbhaoli Sugar Mills and Distilleries in Ghaziabad, the Government said its National Ganga River Basin Authority (NGRBA) has inspected 456 of the 764 grossly polluting industries (GPIs). It said under NGRBA programme, a project on pollution inventorisation, assessment and surveillance has been sanctioned to the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) which has already identified 764 grossly polluting industries (GPI) in five States on the main stem of the Ganga and its tributaries, Kali-East and Ramganga.
