UP, Delhi to lift Yamuna debris

In order to clean four kinds of waste dumped along the Yamuna, which includes construction waste, mixed waste, horticultural waste and large concrete blocks, UP and Delhi governments will remove all debris and solid waste from the Yamuna river bed by May 31.

All the land-owning agencies which have a stake in the riverbanks will ensure that no further dumping is permitted. The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) will monitor progress of the work and submit a report to the Ministry of Environment and Forests. Delhi Development Authority (DDA) has also been asked to identify more sites for dumping construction and demolition waste lying along the riverbank as the four existing sites are inadequate.

Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has also been asked to remove its waste from the Yamuna Bank area. Two sites at Sarai Kale Khan and Shastri Park have been allotted to DMRC for dumping waste. In case these sites are not sufficient, DMRC will take the waste to Burari and bear all costs of transportation.
