'Namami Gange Programme', is an Integrated Conservation Mission, approved as 'Flagship
Programme' by the Union Government in June 2014 with budget outlay of Rs. 20,000 Crore
to accomplish the twin objectives of effective abatement of pollution, conservation and
rejuvenation of National River Ganga.
The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi approved the flagship
"Namami Gange" programme which integrates the efforts to clean and protect the Ganga
River in a comprehensive manner.
So, cleaning the Ganges is also an economic agenda.” To translate this vision, the
Government launched an integrated Ganga conservation mission called 'Namami Gange' to
arrest the pollution of Ganga River and revive the river.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah said the project to clean Ganga, one of the important rivers
of the country, has been a success and the government will launch similar initiatives to clean
other rivers in the country in coordination with the respective state governments.
Pollution of the Ganges (or Ganga), the largest river in India, poses significant threats to
human health and the larger environment. Severely polluted with human waste and
industrial contaminants, the river provides water to about 40% of India's population across
11 states, serving an estimated population of 500 million people which is more than any
other river in the world.
