But not good for Delhi -NCR regions.
Indian railway has informed the National Green Tribunal that it will not be possible to provide ‘Roll-On, Roll-Off’ (RO-RO) services with the existing infrastructure and it is not feasible in Delhi as almost the entire rail network in the region is electrified.
“The ro-ro (roll-on roll-off) service by Konkan Railway started 13 years ago is a unique service that has enabled transport of loaded trucks directly by railway wagons. “The ro-ro service has reduced expenditure on diesel, wear and tear of tyre and maintenance of trucks for operators, and has also ensured on-time and intact delivery,” adding that in 13 years since its inception, there has not been a single case of accident.

There is always a support from the civilian volunteers and organizations to help municipality in cleaning. Every year the challenge is clearing the dead fish from the lake. This is become a routine story here in Pushkar lake every year, I’ve been told that 50,000 fishes died last year after the festival, said a priest at the ghat. This is due to the lighting ghee and oil lamps (diyas) inside the pond by pilgrims. They never listen to public notices.full moon apears on a Poornima, Pushkar. Rajasthan
