The River Ganga is considered to be the Holy river for Hindu Religion. There are many cities located at the banks of river Ganga. Cities like Kanpur, Varanasi, Patna dump huge variety of Organic and toxic wastes connecting various sewage canals to the river. Especially the city Varanasi is known for offering the ashes of the beloved ones in the river Ganga. It is considered to be sacred and a holy ritual in Hindu culture. concerning this many people around the country come to offer the ashes of their beloved ones. All these acts are making the river polluted a lot.

Various farmers are using this water for the cultivation and common men for domestic consumption. Consuming this polluted water and eating the crops cultivated with toxins mixed from the river Ganga leading to health hazards.

There should be a thorough cleaning of the water flown at Varanasi and strict enforcement of rules for not letting Organic and in-organic wastes mixed in the river Ganga.

 Industries should treat the sewage-filled with toxins and clean the water.

 The government should take a step to find a new channel to dumb the wastes. Establishing Dump yards and dumping the wastes in those Dump yards would be better.
