North India’s first River Rejuvenation Project, named Devika, is almost finished and was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. This project modeled after the ‘Namami Ganga‘ initiative, is aimed at restoring the health of the Devika River (in Udhampur, Jammu & Kashmir).


The Liquid Waste Management Project involves creating a network of pipes and manholes connecting households under the Devika Rejuvenation Project. Additionally, a Solid Waste Management Project is planned to further enhance the river’s restoration.
