    Ganga Rejuvenation Ministry has reported a 58 per cent increase in contamination from faecal coliform bacteria in the city's waterway- RTI

      According to reply to India Today’s RTI application, the Ganga Rejuvenation Ministry has reported a 58 per cent increase in contamination from faecal coliform bacteria in the New Delhi waterway.

    India today put in a RTI to find out how much cleaner is the Ganga now than under the previous Government. According to reply to India Today’s RTI application, the Ganga Rejuvenation Ministry has reported a 58 per cent increase in contamination from faecal coliform bacteria in the city’s waterway.

    Ganga samples collected from Varanasi’s Malviya Bridge showed bacterial contamination almost 20 times higher than the official standards.Faecal coliform presence was recorded at 49,000/100ml in 2017 up from 31,000 in 2014 at the bridge location.

    Given its religious and industrial importance, any further deterioration would have significant ramifications.

    The alarming data raises key questions what are its implications for us, and what is happening to Namami Gange, the Narendra Modi government’s much touted, flagship, river clean-up programme.
