In this blog, I am sharing some current environmental issues with the solving schemes launched by the Indian govt. Some schemes need attention on the ground level to really help environmental conservation.
There are always ways to protect the environment and if the government is able to succeed with their schemes, greenery will surely benefit. To reduce environmental pollution and maintain the natural environment, the Indian government has started some schemes which are explained below.
Natural environmental problems solutions scheme
Namami Gange Programme launch date 2014
Environmental monitoring is necessary to create a natural environment on this earth. Therefore from time to time, governments are launching new greenery support schemes. It is a mission to clean a river with a budget of 20,000 crore. Through this programme, the government started making policies and plans to clean the Ganga River.
However, the Indian government needs to check the hotels and industries that are still producing lots of waste materials and throwing them all in the Ganga and other rivers. Government policy and schemes on paper are not enough. They should implement it on the ground level and for that there must be an organised environment management system.

Swachh Bharat Abhiyan 2014
On the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi on 2.10.2014, Swachh Bharat Abhiyan was launched. This scheme’s aim is to stop open defecation. This mission was divided into two parts, rural and urban. According to the scheme the Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation is responsible for rural areas and the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs is responsible for urban areas. Through this scheme, the Indian government is also dedicated towards environmental problems and solutions.
Nagar Van Scheme 2020
The Nagar van scheme was started on 05.06.2020. The aim of the Nagar van scheme is to develop 200 Urban forests pan India in the next five years. The scheme is constructed in such a way as to favour the environmental policy of the world. Indian govt can also look at the United Nations environment programme for ground-level implementation ideas.
Atal Bhuj Yojana (ABHY) 25 December 2019
It was started on 25 Dec 2019, the 95th birth anniversary of former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee. It is also known as an Atal Bihari Vajpayee Yojana and aims to improve groundwater management in 7 states of India within 5 years. It is a mega-budget yojana of Rs 6,000 crore that includes 78 districts, and 193 blocks. The success of this scheme will surely result in an increase in natural environmental health.
Jal Jeevan Mission 2019
The JJM mission was launched in August 2019. The scheme is responsible for supplying 55 litres of water per person every day in every rural household with the help of FHTC means functional household tap connection by 2024.
National Clean Air Programme 2019
The national clean air programme was launched in January 2019. The aim of this mission is to reduce air pollution by 20-30 % in five years. To run this scheme successfully the government must stop or heavily reduce the use of plastics and must have plastic pollution solutions.
All these schemes are based on current environmental issues and are all designed to sort out those issues. At the same time, awareness and environmental education is required among ordinary people as well.
