Three ‘green Cremation’ Platforms At Rasoolabad | Allahabad News


PRAYAGRAJ: Three state-of-the-art ‘green cremation’ platforms, which uses half the quantity of wood as compared to traditional methods, have been constructed at the Rasoolabad cremation ground by the Prayagraj Municipal Corporation.
It would be open for use within this month.
“The facility, which has been put in place under the Smart City Project, incurred a cost of around Rs 4.12 crore. In this, three chambers have been installed at three different platforms where the last rites were performed using the traditional method,” executive engineer at PMC Anil Maurya said.
He added these platforms use around 50% less wood, thereby saving trees and the time taken for complete burning of the body, too is half as compared to traditional method.
The official added that there are chimneys over these platforms that uses scrubber technology for reducing the amount of smoke emission.
“It works on the same technology which is used in Vikram or traditional hukka where the smoke passes through water and the harmful gases settles down and thereby reduces the pollution level,” said Maurya.
This will also bring down cost of cremation.
Now, only the electrical work is left for starting of the facility. For this, PMC has already paid the required amount to the power corporation as it needs a connection of 25 KVA. “The power would be required for operation of the scrubbers of each of the facilities and the high-mast lights etc that would be fitted at the ghat.
“At present, the machines would operate along with the traditional method of performing the last rites but in due course of time, six more such platforms would be constructed after which there will be complete check on the open system of burning the body,” said the official. He also informed that PMC has applied for getting the NOC from the Indian Railways for establishing an electric crematorium at Phaphamau side of the Ganga.
“The tender is already floated, and we would start the construction work for electric crematorium at Phaphamau as soon as we get the no objection from the railways regarding the piece of land on which the said crematorium would come up,” said the official.
