NGT to inspect most polluted parts of Ganga

NGT to inspect most polluted parts of Ganga
In an unprecedented move, the National Green Tribunal on Tuesday said it would itself inspect the most polluted parts of Ganga between Haridwar and Kanpur to get first hand information on the river.
The decision assumes significance as usually the green panel appoints a panel of experts to inspect a site and give a comprehensive ground report to it.

NGT Chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar said it has been hearing the Ganga cleaning case on day-to-day basis but there was still no definitive data on the quality and quantity of pollutants being discharged into the river.
