UP: SWM project gains momentum after CM’s intervention

The Loni Nagar Palika, a town near Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh, has accelerated construction on a solid waste management plant in the neighborhood, days after Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath asked for a report on delayed projects in Ghaziabad.

Reportedly, a lack of funds had stalled the project. However, the state administration has given instructions to finish the project by September 15.

The project’s anticipated cost is Rs 17.3 crore, of which Rs 14.8 crore has already been allocated. The plant has a capacity to handle 276 metric tonnes (MT) of waste per day. Loni produces over 300 MT of waste every day, a significant portion of which ends up in landfills.

The state government approved the Loni waste management plant in 2009, and a total of Rs 11.81 crore was allocated for the project. However, since the project’s implementation was delayed, the cost has increased and is now Rs 17.28 cr, reports The Times of India.
