Mr. Aditynath further instructed the officials to take the assistance from IIT Kanpur to ensure that a riverine city’s master plan is based on a river-centric approach. While speaking to The Quotes, Prof. Tare said that government is investing lot of time and R&D towards reviving the rivers, which are flowing through the cities.
