National River Conservation Plan

Conservation of rivers is a dynamic activity with the ever increasing pollution load due to increase in population. Review of the strategies of conservation policy and identification of additional towns and rivers is a continuous process. Water being a State subject, it is the responsibility of State Governments to create proper sewerage infrastructure to prevent pollution from entering the rivers. Central Government is only supplementing the efforts of the State Governments by providing one time grant for capital works for identified polluted stretches.

The pollution abatement works are implemented through Implementing Agencies nominated by the State Governments for the purpose. A multi-tier monitoring mechanism at the Centre and State level reviews the policy issues, funding pattern and progress of works from time to time.

The States have been advised to ensure coordination among various Departments/agencies at the implementation level through holding regular meetings by Pr8incipal Secretary/Chief Secretary and to sort out inter-sectoral issues like acquisition of land, power supply, mobilization of resources among others.

This information was given by the Minister of State in the Ministry of Environment and Forests, Shri Namo Narayana Meena in a written reply to question by Shri Ravi Prakash Verma and Shri Anandrao V. Adsul: in the Lok Sabha today.
