Land-owning agency is poised to cover more area of the city as green carpet by planting four lakh indigenous species this year.
Dwarka- Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal on 5th August inaugurated Van Mahotsav and Rose Garden developed by the Delhi Development Authority at Dwarka.
“DDA is poised to cover more area of Delhi as Green Carpet by planting 4 lakh indigenous species this year keeping in view its sustainable environment. As a new initiative, the DDA has associated the children of various Delhi schools of Class VI and above to plant and adopt a tree and to place name plaque on the adopted tree to inculcate the sense of belongingness,” said the LG.
He also said that the DDA has developed 11.5 acres of green area in Sector-16C, Dwarka for Rose Garden, Fruit Garden and Herbal Garden. The Rose Garden spreads over an area of 6.5 acres with 90 different varieties of roses.
These have been brought from Kolkata especially for creating the garden. There are approximately 3,52,000 flora species in the world right now which contributes greatly to the current flora and fauna sector. Having one in our sub-city Dwarka is a big thing in itself which in turn will elevate the existing environment and air condition to a better level as well as helping to preserve some of the rarest species left with us.
