UP to have new authority to develop waterways
Uttar Pradesh will now have a dedicated body to oversee the development of new waterways.
Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh will now have a dedicated body to oversee the development of new waterways. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has announced the setting up of a new authority that would explore options of waterways and also work out policies to provide cheaper options of transport to give a boost to the micro small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in the state.
Yogi said that Uttar Pradesh's first waterway from Varanasi to Haldia was functional and the proposed authority should do its work by conducting a survey. He said Uttar Pradesh had Yamuna Expressway while Agra-Lucknow Expressway was nearing completion when his government was installed in 2017.
