City may ban all farming along Yamuna 24.7.2014 Asian Age: Delhi
With traces of toxic metals found in fruits and vegetables grown along the banks of the Yamuna river, the city administration is likely to ban farming with contaminated water from the river. The national capital receives 95 per cent of its vegetables and fruits from other states. Of the remaining five per cent, half of these are grown using the Yamuna’s polluted water. As the move to ban farming would render many farmers jobless, the city administration may allow the land to be used for farming of ornamental flowers. Soon after the WHO dubbed Delhi as one of most the polluted cities, the city administration set up a high-level committee to tackle growing air and water pollution. The committee also deliberated on the farming of vegetables and fruits along the 22-km river as they were found to contain highly toxic metals, unfit for human consumption. The city administration is also examining a study by The Energy Research Institute (Teri), which showed that the continuous dumping of untreated industrial ...

Govt may ban veg farming at Yamuna 24.7.2014 Deccan Herald - New Delhi
The city government is planning to ban farming of vegetables using Yamuna water. Many reports from different organisations and NGOs have suggested that the harmful chemicals in polluted Yamuna are being transferred to the vegetables which are grown on the riverbank in the city. Reports have suggested that levels of nickel, manganese and lead in Yamuna water are higher than the international aquatic water quality criteria for fresh water. A high-powered committee on environment was constituted by the Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung after a recent World Health Organisation (WHO) report study claimed that Delhi was the most polluted city in the world. "The high-powered committee has asked the Horticulture Department to immediately make a plan to stop such farming of vegetables. Not all the farmers at Yamuna's riverbed are using its water for irrigation but many of the poor are relying on it," a senior government official said. Survey planned A survey will be conducted on area under farming on Yamuna's banks ...

Bihar to build 1.20 cr toilets 24.7.2014 Deccan Herald - New Delhi
Pledging to construct 1.21 crore toilets over next five years covering all households in Bihar, the state government on Wednesday vowed to end the practice of defecation in open places by 2019 as a token of tribute to Mahatma Gandhi on his 150th birth anniversary. "As many as 40 lakh toilets have been constructed in Bihar under various state and Central schemes and 1.21 crore more toilets will be constructed over next five years to ensure to meet the target of one toilet per household," Public Health and Engineering Department (PHED) Minister Mahachandra Prasad Singh informed the state Legislative Assembly. Replying to the debate on tardy pace of toilet construction in Bihar initiated by JD-U MLA Izhar Ahmed, he said the practice of defecation in the open will be brought to an end after construction of 1.61 crore toilets covering each household by 2019 and it will be a fitting tribute to Mahatma Gandhi on his 150th birth anniversary. Tribute to Gandhi Gandhi had spoken about sanitation facilities in ...
