Indore, the cleanest city in India, is on its way to becoming a whole lot greener than ever before. Owing to the redevelopment and urbanization of most of the city, a lot of the forest area and the green cover in general has been cut down. Now, the Indore Smart City Development Ltd (ISCDL), which is the body behind the smart city makeover, are planning to increase the green cover all across Indore.

What's the update?

Contrary to popular belief, the smart city project is not just all about building skyscrapers and covering every inch of the city in technology. It is also about building a sustainable place for Indoris, where they can live as they used to, just with a better quality of life.

The latest such development, which doesn't involve constructing sky high buildings is to increase the green area and make Indore not just the cleanest city, but also the greenest one.

Why the need?

Owing to the recent urbanization of Indore, a majority of the green cover has been lost. Now, the ISCDL is hard at work to give something back to the environment. They plan to plant trees in more congested and traffic ridden areas, so as to help with the ever increasing pollution issue in Indore.

Apart from that, they are also focusing on providing Indoris with a better flora all across the city, that will contribute in improving the air quality.

As for the newly planted trees, the ISCDL also has plans to install chips in them, so that they get an idea of the entire forest cover in Indore. With the help of this, they can monitor areas and the green cover, which should be beneficial if they wish to change anything in the future.

Knock Knock

With the recent news of new buildings and structures coming up in the city it seemed like all natural life in Indore would take a hit. However, this development comes as a breath of fresh air, quite literally, and should herald an era of a more eco-friendly Indore.
