In an effort to manage and convert livestock waster and other bio-waste into energy, the Union government of India has launched Gobar Dhan Yojana.
Union Minister for Drinking Water and Sanitation Uma Bharti and Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar have launched the Union government’s ‘GOBAR-Dhan Yojana’ for managing and converting livestock waste and other bio-waste into energy. Kunjpura village in the district was selected for the scheme, under which bio-gas would be supplied to 100 households after processing dung. She said panchayats would play a key role in implementation of the scheme, under which bio-gas plants would be set up. She greeted people on Buddha Purnima and said a new initiative was being taken on this day.
Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said the Prime Minister had given several schemes to the country and he had an objective behind every scheme.
He said the state government was making arrangements for generating bio-gas from cow dung and it would assist those panchayats intending to set up gas plants in their villages. “There are about 450 ‘gaushalas’ and ‘nandishalas’ in the state with about 3.41 lakh cattle,” he said.
He assured the Union Minister on effective implementation of the scheme. He said schemes which were launched from Haryana had always been successful.
