Source: The Times of India, New Delhi, Date: December , 2009

In an initiative to make the Ganges pollution free, the city's municipal corporation has banned littering of pan masala pouches and polythene bags on the banks of the river.Mayor, Kanpur Nagar Nigam, Ravindra Patni said that those found violating the order would be fined Rs 200. The ban extends to all the five banks in the city. This initiative will definitely bring about a change in the scenario as the decision to ban immersion of idols on Durga puja and on Dusshera has contributed a lot towards keeping the Ganga clean, Patni said.
