news item image
India's Union Minister for Jal Shakti, Shri Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, has launched a Unified Registration Portal, which acts as a one-stop repository for users to assess investment and participation in biogas at a pan-Indian level.
The portal is named "Galvanizing Organic Bio-Agro Resources Dhan" (GOBARdhan), and also streamlines the process of setting up biogas and CBG plants in India.
Any government, cooperative or private entity operating or intending to setup a biogas, CBG or bio CNG plant in India can obtain a registration number by enrolling in this unified registration portal.
The registration number will bring a multitude of benefits and support from the ministries and Indian government departments.
As the nodal department for GOBARdhan, Department of Drinking Water and Sanitation (DDWS), the Ministry of Jal Shakti has developed this portal.
The launch on 1 June was virtually attended by additional Chief Secretaries and Principal Secretaries (in charge of rural sanitation) of all states/UTs and representation of various central Ministries and Departments.
Addressing the gathering, Gajendra Singh Shekhawat said that this Unified Registration Portal of GOBARdhan is a perfect example of Cooperative Federalism as the stakeholder Central Ministries, all line departments of Centre and States have come together in development and deployment of the portal.
He stated: “Our visionary Prime Minister gave us the responsibility of ensuring ‘waste to wealth’ to which effect we launched the GOBARdhan initiative. With more than 650 GOBARdhan plants and this portal, we have made significant achievement in our waste to wealth generation journey”.
The GOBARdhan initiative is envisioned to contribute significantly towards reaching India’s climate action goals, particularly achieving net-zero emissions by 2070.
