IET India IoT Panel consults with the National Mission for Clean Ganga
IET India IoT Panel members with Mr Upendra Prasad Singh, Director General, NMCG
Members of the IET India IoT Panel were invited to consult with the Government of India’s National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG). Dr Rishi Bhatnagar, Chairman of the IET India IoT Panel, Mr Vivek Mehrotra, Chairman of the IET India IoT Panel’s Ganga Rejuvenation Working Group, Mr T V Ramachandran, Advisory Panel Member of the IET India IoT Panel and senior members of the panel met with Shri Upendra Prasad Singh, Director General, NMCG.
The group discussed four main areas of concern with respect to NMCG – Improving the water flow in Ganga, better treatment of pollutants via sewage and effluent treatment plants, controlling unregulated sewage, open defecation etc., and handling chemical run off from agricultural lands (fertilisers and pesticides) as well as rituals in Ganga.
As a next step, the IET India IoT Panel’s Ganga Rejuvenation Working Group will come up with a high level draft on how the panel could contribute towards alleviating these pain points. The working group will also create a pavilion at the IoT India Congress 2017 with a special focus on the National Clean Ganga Mission.
