Keep the River Ganga clean

As a responsible traveller, it is the responsibility of all that we make minimal impacts on the environment and keep River Ganges free from pollution. All who have planned their river rafting adventure in Rishikesh and are heading to India are requested to contribute towards the mission of keeping the Ganga clean.

Various 'Keep the Ganges Clean' campaigns are being run across the country. Both government and non-government organizations are making efforts to keep the river free from pollution. The Indian government took the first step towards this cause through the Ganga Action Plan (GAP) in the year 1984. Most of the tasks under this plan were completed in 1991.

Polluted Ganga water affects the lives of many, particularly those who are dependent on the river. Those who are dependent on the river for their water supply fall prey to serious illnesses like hepatitis, typhoid, cholera etc. According to the WorldWatch Institute (Washington DC), every 8 out of 10 Indians suffer from waterborne stomach illnesses.
