Some of The Most Recent Major Projects Executed During 2016-17


National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG) is a registered society formed by Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change (MoEF & CC) with an aim to ensure effective abatement of pollution and rejuvenation of the river Ganga by adopting a river basin approach to promote inter-sectoral co-ordination for comprehensive planning and management, and to maintain minimum ecological flows in the river Ganga with the aim of ensuring water quality and environmentally sustainable development.

VIMTA along with Engineers India Limited and IIT Kanpur participated in Clean Ganga Project for collection and analysis of water samples relating to environmental pollution in the river Ganga.

The river stretch from Kanpur to Allahabad, Allahabad to Varanasi, Rishikesh to Haridwar and Patna were covered for an aggregate length of 500 km.The study involved identification of all the pollution sources joining the river in these stretches and their flow measurements and quality analysis



  • Cairn India Limited is carrying out drilling activities (off shore of Andhra Pradesh and Tamilnadu) in Palar block in Bay of Bengal. VIMTA has carried out marine environmental monitoring for seawater and sediment analysis at about 40 km into the deep sea from coast during pre drilling, during-drilling and post-drilling operations.


    India's space agency ISRO recently launched a record 103 satellites at one go on a single rocket in the first week of February 2017, a major feat not attempted by any other country.

    VIMTA was proudly associated with SHAR-ISRO, Sriharikota, for pollution monitoring during this historical national mission.
