Restoration of a Historic Tank in the Heritage City

When nature and history meet, there is true harmony in that environment. An environment that is rich not only in culture, but also flora and fauna. Such is the story of the Makarba Tank. A large water body located in the southern neighborhoods of Ahmedabad that feeds the historic Sarkhej Roza.

Over the years as the region saw a rise in population, several local residents began to dump their solid waste directly into the tank. This paved way for invasive weed species to take over the lake, choking away its life.

In an effort to revive and conserve this water body, E.F.I in association with the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation, and the IndusInd Bank, part of the Hinduja Foundation under the Jal Jeevan initiative have taken on the task of restoring the historic Makarba Tank. Take a look at all that happened during this restoration!

Check out how the lake looks a year after its restoration!

We thank all those who supported us in restoring the Makarba Tank!
