At a review meeting with the National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG), representatives of Kanpur Development Authority, Kanpur Municipal Corporation, Jal Nigam, Ganga Pollution Control Board unit and tannery owners, the Minister said that the central government was serious about online monitoring of pollution in the Ganga.

The Minister asked the tannery owners to pay their dues so that treatment plant could be run properly. She instructed the KMC officials to run the chromium recovery plant to its full capacity and connect more tanneries to it. She specifically asked the officials to separate the common effluent treatment plant of Jajmau as both the domestic and industrial wastes were being treated in the same plant at the moment.
