Centre plans commission status for Ganga authority
Source: Economic Times, Date: March , 2015
If the Centre has its way, the
National Ganga River Basin Authority (NGRBA) - a key central body which
monitors planning and execution of all schemes of Ganga rejuvenation in
coordination with five states - will be converted into a commission under
Parliament Act so that it can work more effectively.
A proposed law on this matter was discussed in a high-level review
meeting here on Ganga cleaning on Thursday where Prime Minister Narendra Modi
called for an "uncompromising mission-mod approach" to stop
further pollution of the country's national river.
