1. Ganga River 

Often referred to as ‘Holy Ganga’; this river is no longer holy when it comes to pollution. Ganga not only tops the list of most polluted river in India; but also tops the same in the World. Ganga has reached much farther than the WHO’s permissible limits in pollution levels.

 

It’s a sad state for most of the rivers in India. Human waste and industrial pollutants are making the river water useless for bathing and agricultural needs; let alone for drinking. It will be an impossible task if we want to clean these rivers.
