The pollution assessment is based on the bio-chemical oxygen demand (BOD) levels which are the key indicators of pollution, MoS (Independent Charge) of environment, forest and climate change, Anil Madhav Dave said in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha.
Out of these, there are 13 stretches along rivers in Uttar Pradesh, 21 polluted stretches are in Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat has around 20 polluted stretches, while Maharashtra tops the list with 49 polluted stretches.
