The country's top green bench, in its latest decision to save the Ganga, has banned the dumping of any kind of waste within 500 metres of the river's edge; anyone caught littering the Ganga will be charged a fine of Rs 50,000. Out of this, Rs 4864.48 has been spent till June 30 this year, leaving an unspent balance of Rs 1924.30 crore.

The NGT also directed the governments in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand to formulate guidelines for religious activities on the ghats of Ganga or its tributaries.

"Such mining should be permitted only after a detailed and comprehensive assessment of the annual replenishment of sand and gravel in the river bed and ensuring that the longitudinal and lateral connectivity of the river is not disturbed and that only quantity less or equal to the annual replenishment is permitted to be removed from the river bed or its banks", it said. It ordered that extraction of groundwater by any industry will be only after seeking permission from the Central Ground Water Authority (CGWA).
