The Government of India (GOI) has established NGRBA for the comprehensive management of the river with the mandate of addressing both water quantity and quality aspects, through a multi-sector, river-basin approach. The NGRBA has resolved that by year 2020 no untreated municipal sewage or industrial effluents will be discharged into River Ganga.

The NGRBA has a detailed implementation structure, supported by the GoI. At the state level, State Ganga River Basin Authorities (SGRBA’s) have been proposed.
