Millennium post, New Delhi, Mar, 2017 :To monitor pollution in the Ganga on a real time basis, the Central government has installed 44 Real-Time Water Quality Monitoring Stations (RTWQMS) in the river to provide pollution data on the patterns of air pollution data in Delhi. The pollution data will be displayed on big LED television screens at the headquarters of Namami Gange through online networking and in the offices of Chief Ministers of concerned states. "We have recently completed the infrastructure to receive real-time water pollution data from 44 RTWQMS stations installed in various cities situated on the bank of the river. These stations have started sending real-time water quality data but they will be calibrated by the scientists of Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) before being made available in the public domain," said U P Singh, pointing towards a big LED television screen installed in his office on which pollution data of various stations was displayed on rotational basis. Singh is Director General of Namami Gange, the flagship project of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to clean and rejuvenate the holy river.
