Starting July 5, Forest Department will begin an afforestation drive from Gr Noida to celebrate Van Mahotsav, under which almost 34,000 saplings will be planted. At least 75 hectares will be utilised for plantation. The Forest Department will spent around Rs 11.25 lakh annually for the upkeep of these plants.
The saplings once planted will be constantly monitored to see their growth. The Gr Noida Industrial Development Authority will also chip in to make the drive successful.
