The Namami Gange team met Delhi Jal Board executives to review progress of various projects in Delhi. It was observed that there was a significant progress in almost all projects in comparison to the previous review meetings. Two major projects have been completed in sewerage management that includes completion of the rising main from Bharat Nagar to Pitampura which will ensure that the sewage generated from the areas like Karol Bagh, Shastri Nagar, Gulabi Bagh, Rampura, Ashok Vihar and Keshavpuram etc will be tapped and prevented from entering Yamuna. Another major project completed is Rehabilitation of Trunk Sewer at Jhilmil colony.

The work for Rithala Sewage Treatment Plant and Kondli Sewage Treatment Plant is nearly half done and it is expected to be completed by December 2022. After completion of Kondli STP, the quality of water entering Shahdara drainage will improve to a great extent. Rehabilitation of a peripheral sewer in Rithala is expected to be completed by April 2021. Rehabilitation of this sewer will have a direct impact on the sewage generated in Ashok Vihar and Jehangirpuri areas. STPs of the Rithala cluster are being upgraded and work is progressing well. The main hurdle of necessary permissions regarding relocation/transplantation of trees in the STP premises have been received now. The Sewage Treatment Plant for Okhla is also progressing well. This will be the largest STP in India with a capacity of 565 MLD. A total of 13 projects for 1384.50 MLD have been taken up in Delhi for Yamuna Cleaning.
