No Development Zone
The River Ganga (Rejuvenation, Protection and Management) Authorities Order, 2016 provides that the bank of River Ganga, its tributaries or the active flood area of them shall be construction free zone. It also prohibits construction of any structure for residential or commercial or industrial or any other purposes.
The National Green Tribunal has directed to identity and demarcate the flood plains of river Ganga from Haridwar to Unnao. Once the demarcation of flood plain is completed, 100 metres from the edge of the river would be designated as no development/construction zone. Further, Ministry of Environment Forests & Climate Change also circulated draft notification on “River Conservation Zones” in 2015 to all States.
