The need for revamping the river conservation program was widely recognized in view of the shortcomings in the approach followed in the Ganga Action Plan (GAP). It was felt necessary that a new holistic approach based on river basin as the unit of planning and institutional redesign may be adopted. Accordingly, the Government of India has given Ganga the status of a National River and has constituted the National Ganga River Basin Authority (NGRBA) on 20 February 2009 under Section 3 (3) of the Environment (Protection) Act, 1986. National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG), a registered society under the Societies Registration Act, 1860, is the implementing wing of NGRBA and its General Body is chaired by the Ministry of Jal Shakti, Government of India. A Joint Secretary to the Government of India (GOI) level officer is the Director General. To implement the program in the states under the overall supervision of NMCG, there are State Program Management Groups (SPMGs), registered as societies in the respective states, namely Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Bihar and West Bengal while Jharkhand has a dedicated nodal cell. The SPMGs are also headed by senior IAS officers of the level of Secretary / Principal Secretary of the states. NGRBA program believes that each of its investments will improve living standards and the environment of the River in and around project locations. NGRBA program is committed to implementing these activities in an environmentally sound, socially acceptable way. This has reflected its environmental and social commitments through its Environmental and Social Management Framework (ESMF). All investments financed by NGRBA program should be in consonance with its ESMF. NMCG now invites eligible consulting firms (Consultants) to indicate their interest in providing the Environment and Social Audit Services for its various projects across Ganga Basin States.
