Importance of rivers in human life is immense. From the very dawn of the society human civilization is depended on rivers. But now the most serious problem that is facing by the rivers is pollution. In Indian society most of the rivers are regarded as sacred as goddess. But the most sacred river of India river Ganga is also not free from pollution. The national and the holiest river of India now become one of the most polluted rivers in the country and one of the ten most threatened river basin in the world. Water condition of the river has now become dangerous and harmful to the people not only for drinking or bathing but also for agricultural use. Presence of Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD), nitrite, nitrate, Total Coliform (TC) and Faecal Coliform (FC) which are the core parameter of pollution and responsible for many diseases, has been studied by the 57 water quality monitoring centre of Central Pollution Control Board is very high in Ganga. Domestic, industrial and religious factors are mainly responsible for the pollution in river Ganga. Many steps like GAP-I, GAP-II have been taken by the Government to make Ganga pollution free. Besides governmental efforts many NGOs, environmentalists and social workers are working for River Ganga.
