  • Under this programme, people of Punjab can get the saplings of their choice at their doorstep and that too free of cost.

A look at how this process is done:

  • The users can book a sapling of their choice, a maximum of 25 per person, from a nearby government nursery.
  • Once the booking is done, the contact number of the concerned employee of the nursery or the forest guard will be displayed on the mobile phone of the person.

Motive

  • The main motive behind this move is to inspire more and more people to plant maximum saplings during the current monsoon season in order to save the environment from pollution hazards.
  • It must be noted that Punjab Government, in order to ensure that there is no misuse of this noble cause, has imposed a condition of proper upkeep and care of the saplings.
  • State Forest Minister Sadhu Singh Dharamsot has exhorted all the stakeholders to plant the saplings in large number in order to ensure a clean and green Punjab.
  • Lets hope the entire nation walks on this much needed environment-friendly path and make our surroundings ecologically balanced & sustainable.
