At this congregation, hundreds of health care professionals and experts in traditional medicinal practices from 53 countries will be participating to gain first-hand knowledge of Ayurveda.

Inland waterways will reshape transportation

Priority development of National Waterway-1 was undertaken through the Jal Vikas Marg Project (JVMP), which includes Arth Ganga, and they will give an economic boost of ₹1,000 crore over the next five years. Besides trade benefits, the local community’s enhancement and passenger facilitation will also ensure large-scale skills development and boost public/private sector capability

A World Bank study shows that one litre of fuel can move 105 tonne-km by inland water transport, against 85 tonne-km by rail and 24 tonne-km by road. Similarly, the carbon emission per tonne-km is 32-36 gm in the case of container vessels, against 51-91 gm for road transport vehicles. This also means we must use renewable energy in inland waterways. (HT PHOTO)
