L-G Jung's environment panel calls for more sewage treatment plants to boost Yamuna clean-up

Source: The Daily Mail, Date: June , 2014

Installing more 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 in Delhi.

The panel's 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.
