The National Mission on Clean Ganga under the ministry of water resources, river development and Ganga rejuvenation had given a one-year assignment to the Forest Research Institute, Dehradun, to prepare the report on forestry interventions for Ganga last year.

After the institute submitted the draft DPR to the mission, the water resources ministry conveyed its approval and asked the Dehradun-based institute to finalise the DPR incorporating specific comments and suggestions made by the ministry.

The final DPR will be released in the presence of Environment, Forests and Climate Change Minister Prakash Javadekar and Minister of State for Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation Sanwar Lal Jat.

A daylong workshop will also be organised to mark the release of the DPR.
