Dyeing units still discharge water into Ganga

Source: The Times of India, New Delhi, Date: June , 2010

Millions of rupees were already spent in the past and investment of huge funds is currently being made to clean the national river Ganga.
But, not much positive change can be seen in the health of the river. Local authorities claim three dyeing and printing units that were discharging untreated coloured effluents into the Ganga were closed in February last. But, one can still see discharge of coloured effluents into the river at Harishchandra Ghat and some other places.
