Border Security Force (BSF) personnel set a LIMCA Book of Record by planting saplings at all BSF locations on 19 August 2014 in a special tree plantation drive. This drive was carried out under Green Mission.

Around two lakh saplings were planted in 30 minutes at all Frontiers, Headquarters, Sector Headquarters, Training Institutions, Battalion Headquarters and all Border Outposts along the Bangladesh border of 4,096 km and Pakistan border of 3,323 Km.

It is due to this time limit and vastness of plantation area that BSF made a record as per LIMCA Book of Record. The representatives of LIMCA Book of Records were present at different locations.

They planted fruit plants, ornamental plants and shadow plants.

Green Mission

The plantation of saplings is a part of yearly awareness programme Green Mission headed by BSF Director General D K Pathak to promote preservation of biodiversity and create awareness about global warming.

The green mission would help mend environmental degradation and maintain ecological balance.
