Dear India Water Portal,

Hello! My name is Morgane Roos and I am a Swiss student. I am working on and have to produce a geographic analysis for which I have chosen the subject of Varanasi and the Ganga. This is because I liked this city a lot during my journey in India.

I have contacted you in the hope that you can give me current information about the state of waters of the Ganga in Varanasi (pH, BOD, DO, fecal coliform etc). I thank you in advance for your help without which I will not be able to complete my work successfully

Thankyou

There is no clear mandate for the new 'Ministry of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation' set up by the Modi government.

True to the promises made during election campaigning, Narendra Modi, India's 15th Prime Minister announced measures to clean up the Ganga as soon as he assumed office. A new Ministry in charge of river issues has been created. Originally the 'Ministry of Water Resources', it will now be called the 'Ministry of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation' headed by Uma Bharti. How much this will help the Ganga, however, is a matter of speculation.
