On the regular hearing on the clean Ganga drive, NGT has ordered an in-depth analysis of the ongoing projects by Jal Nigam in Garhmukteshwar in Uttar Pradesh.

The bench member of NGT has found that the project on sewage treatment plants and sewerage lines worth Rs.31.82 crore was implemented without any investigation.
