Solution to river bank erosion in lower stream of Ganga?

Published on by in Academic

Ganga river bank erosion is one of the burning issues in the lower stream of Ganga. That causes displacement of thousands of inhabitants each year. Till date, various steps have been taken up for erosion control but the erosion and degradation still continues. 

Experts suggested that the only permanent solution under the existing river flow condition is to decrease water pressure from the left bank to divert flow from eroding channel.

I would like to ask experts from this community, are there any other solutions for reducing the river bank erosion? Has anyone worked on this issue?
