The Government of Chhattisgarh has set a target of planting over eight Cr plant saplings by the end of August 2017.
The announcement was made by the state’s Chief Minister, Raman Singh in Naya Raipur on 20 July 2017. The mega-mission will be taken up across the state under the 'Harihar Chhattisgarh' campaign. To ensure the success of the same, Singh has called for active participation of people.
Further, the Minister stated that Oxy-zones will be developed in all the 27 districts of the state and added saying that if citizens are keen on developing similar 'Oxy-zones' on their 3-5 acre site, they can get themselves registered with Chhattisgarh's Forest Department.
Besides this, the state’s forest department would be allotting plants for providing green cover to the owners of lands more than ten acres.
The first day of the plantation mission saw a huge participation from school children and people from across different districts of the state.
What are Oxy-zones?
Oxy-zones are spaces that breathe life and emit fresh oxygen.
The space offers an ideal balance of greenery with a variety of flowering shrubs and green lawns.
The zones serve as an arena for rejuvenation, recreation, and renewal and are a significant step towards achieving environmental sustainability.
