New Delhi: Noting that huge resources have been spent under various schemes for cleaning the Ganga river so far, a Parliamentary Panel has said that it is the time to see its impact.
In its report, the Standing Committee on Science and Technology, Environment and Forests has noted that the initiative to clean Ganga started somewhere in 6th Five Year Plan under Ganga Action Plan (GAP).

"Thereafter, GAP-II and some other schemes with different names were operationalised by the ministry but the end result is for everyone to see," the panel, chaired by T Subbarami Reddy, said.

"Huge resources have been spent since 1995 on GAP and it is the time that impact of GAP should become visible to the public," the panel said.
