Source: The Daily Mail, Date: June , 2014
sewage and effluent treatment plants and restricting the discharge of untreated
wastewater into drains are among the recommendations of a high-power committee
convened by Lieutenant-Governor Najeeb Jung to clean the polluted Yamuna river
recommendations come at a time when there are already reports of the Centre
spending more than Rs 1,500 crore under the Yamuna Action Plan (YAP) I and II
to clean the Yamuna - one of the most polluted rivers in India.
The YAP's first
phase was launched in 1993. It then covered Delhi, eight towns in Uttar Pradesh
and six towns in Haryana. Under YAP II, the focus was on the Yamuna's 22-km
stretch in Delhi.
