Chitkara University NewGen IEDC has supported a project entitled ‘SwacchNeer’ with a prototyping grant. Under this project a low cost water filtration device has been implemented by Mrs. Pooja Mahajan (PhD Scholar) under the guidance of Dr. Jyotsna Kaushal (Head, Center of Water Sciences, Chitkara University, Punjab). Water filtered from SwacchNeer has been analyzed in house and outside NABL lab where physio-chemical parameters were tested and found to be under acceptable limits of BIS.
On October 11, 2019 an event was conducted where 50 units of this filtration device were distributed to all those from Chitkara University who had booked it in advance. Dr. Jyotsna Kausal shared the journey of this project with the audience along with the instructions on how to use this water filtration device. Dr. Archana Mantri – Chief Coordinator, Chitkara University, NewGen IEDC was also present in the event and she congratulated the team of SwachhNeer for its efforts and project outcome.
