Work On River

Sant Seechewal mobilized numberless people (Sangat) round the globe for the voluntary kar sewa of rejuvenation of Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s historic river Kali Bein, 160-km long tributary of the Beas, flowing through Doaba, the fertile central part of Punjab, known as the Granary of India. When Sant Seecyewal began the kar sewa in July 2000, the Kali Bein river was on the verge of death due to worst type of domestic and industrial pollution. Sant Seechewal, with the help of his Sangat, has cleared hyacinth and silt out of the bed of river, restored flow of clean water in it and beautified it with flowers and fruit trees, bathing ghats and bricked roads on its banks, transforming it into a picnic spot where the religious pilgrims, students and tourists from India and abroad come daily in large numbers to have a glimpse of its beauty.

Work On Underground sewerage System

Sant Seechewal has devised an underground sewerage system which is low-cost and indigenously modeled, but very effective, durable and easy to install. The efficacy of this system has been attested by its practical installation in more than 50 villages and towns. In this system, sewage waters are stored in a pond, treated in natural way and, then, supplied for agricultural use. This process promotes organic farming and saves farmers’ money on fertilizers and irrigation. The farmers of the area who, being crop-less and poor, were compelled to commit suicides, are glad to have a taste of prosperity as a result of Sant Seechewal’s kar sewa of the river.

Work On the Roads

Often remembered as “Baba of Roads”, Sant Seechewal has built thousands of kms of roads in backwards areas, which has set in a new era of faster economic and social development in this area.Work 

Sewage Treatment

Treatment Plant    


    Dirty effluents posed a great problem in restoring the purity of the Holy Bein. To tackle this problem, at Sultanpur Lodhi, the sewage treatment plant was restored, 8 kms-long underground pipelines were laid in order to supply the treated sewage water for agricultural use by which natural farming is now being promoted. 

    Treated sewage water of Kapurthala town is also being supplied for use in agriculture on the same pattern. Dirty sewage water of Dasuya town in Hoshiarpur District, which had been contaminating the Holy Bein, is now being used for bringing prosperity in 5 kms of agricultural land after treatment. 

    In about 40 villages situated along the Holy Kali Bein river, ponds and tanks have been prepared to collect the sewage waters for simple treatment and pipelines have been laid for supplying the treated water to the farmers for irrigating their crops. In all this, consumption of water, chemical fertilizers and electricity have much diminished, resulting in much economic gain to the farmers. In the agricultural countries like India, treated sewage waters can prove a great boon.
