Since dawn of the human history rivers are regarded as the life line all over the world.
Life of 450 million people is dependant on the river Ganga.
Ecologically unplanned industrialization and urbanization have imposed serious threat to our rivers.
Majority of rivers are either polluted or under dying phase.
Our planners & policy makers are facing serious problems pertaining to the availability of reliable ecological data to make sound ecological plans.
Unavailability of reliable ecological data was also discussed before the Hon,ble Prime Minister in a NGRBA meeting.
The NGRBA has resolved to establish a dedicated institution for Ganga related R&D activities at Varanasi.
Henceforth, the Banaras Hindu University has established a multidiscipli-nary 'Mahamana Malaviya Research Centre for Ganga, River Development & Water Resource Management' (ECR No. 269 dt. 21st April 2015).
Bharat Ratna Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya Ji had deep regards for the rivers, specially Mother Ganga and uninterrupted flow of Ganga was maintained through an agreement between British Government and a group of Hindu leaders including Maharaja(s) of different States, headed by Pt. Madan Mohan Malaviya Ji in 1916.
