The Nagpur Bench of the Bombay High Court observed that Industrialisation and urbanisation has reduced Nag river to a cursed lady by heavily polluting it.


  • The Nag River is a river flowing through the city of Nagpur in Maharashtra. Nagpur city derives its name from the Nag river.

  • Forming a part of the Kanhan-Pench river system, the Nag River originates in Lava hills near wadi.

  • The river serves as drainage for Nagpur and as a result its ecosystem is heavily polluted by urban waste from the city. The Nag River Rejuvenation was cleared by National River Conservation Directorate in November 2019.
