One of the prime objectives of this new State Government under the leadership of Hon’ble Chief Minister Shri Sarbananda Sonowal is to transform the Assam into a pollution-free state. The Assam Government is giving the best of its efforts to make the state a popular eco-tourism hotspot for the tourists, while giving equal emphasis on conservation.
With the aim of making Assam pollution-free, the State Government is organising a conservation initiative where 33 districts of the State will be competing against each other for the “Best Pollution-Free Green District of Assam” title. Through this competition, the Government wants to create environmental awareness among the people and work collectively for implementing anti-pollution measures in their respective districts.
A state can render a beautiful appeal to it by taking up various conservation efforts such as planting saplings across the entire expanse of the state, cycling more instead of driving to reach shorter distances, banning plastics, using two separate dustbins for degradable and bio-degradable products, practising sustainable living, preserving existing green areas, increasing the recycling rate, etc.
In every district, a diverse variety of trees such as Neem, Lichi, Bullet Wood, Flame Trees, Yellow Flame, etc. could be planted to purify the air, which will also give the district a picturesque appearance. Fruit orchards are also extremely beneficial in serving both beautification and commercial purposes.
Each district will be judged on the basis of its unique preservation and eco-friendly efforts to turn Assam into a pollution-free state. It will be the responsibility of each district to take care of the saplings planted in this pollution-free drive until it turns into mature trees.

The district, which most efficiently adopt and implement these ideas would be rewarded at the end of this year and it will bag the Best Pollution-Free Green District of Assam title.

Prize Money: Rs. 40,000 and a Certificate

Sir , as we all know NE region is green enough . We just need to maintain the availble resources. As the development will go up the greenary footprint will come down .so why not we should invest in already established things. Like transport connectivity we should focus on public transport so that not delhi like condition arise . For eg if the speed of the trains will be high the food proccesing industry can be boom up as we can deliver the services in a shorter time to the other regions.

Hon'ble sir, it would be one kind of great initiative if the assam and north east connectivity will be made in terms speeding up the train speed and by the side of big stations like guwahati and others there can be big storages house where the trains can unload the raw matwrials of the items that can be processed(food processing industry and other SMSEs) which is not being grown here like good packed food as the trains are not providing good quality food we all knowl).#time #revenue.............

Reducing your bathing time
Install a low-flow showerhead
Turn off the water in the sink while shaving or brushing your teeth.
Submerge a full water bottle in the toilet tank to shift or move water and make it a low flow model to save water with each flush
Fix leaking pipes
Recycle water in your home
Where possible, try not to use water as a cleaning solution. Baking Soda and Vinegar can work just as well as other cleaning products.#WorldEnvironmentDay, #PollutionFree.

To make a pollution free district in Assam, Government needs to promote use of Compressed natural Gas (CNG) or Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) or Liquefied Compressed Natural Gas (LCNG) for Vehicles (Automotve Fuels). For buses running under JNNURM, ASTC Buses. This will benefit Assam and bring doen the flaring of associated Natural gas from the OIL fields in upper assam districts and ONGCL Golaghat gasfields. A scheme is attached for review
