NMCG Meeting at Delhi

Writing this from Banga Bhavan, just after the meeting of the Governing Council of NMCG (National Mission for Clean Ganga).

After normal agenda business was over, I mentioned that the State Government under the leadership of Hon'ble CM is launching a tree plantation drive in the coming monsoons which is around the corner. The Forest Research Institute at Dehra Dun had prepared a DPR for greening the shores of Ganga Basin in West Bengal. However, the approval had not been communicated and considering that it requires time for preparation of pits, collection/ raising of saplings etc, any further delay would be avoidable. The Chairman (Secretary MoWR  Shasi Sekhar) issued instructions immediately and I am told by the State Nodal Officer that he just received a call from NMCG that necessary clearance would be given soon.

At the meeting I was also told that projects worth Rs 15 cr for Ghats and Crematorium at Garulia had also been sanctioned.

I would hold a co-ordination meeting on Saturday at Kolkata.
