In an attempt to beautify the various localities and areas around them, Jaipur Municipal Corporation Heritage has started a Green Parkota scheme(Green Walled City Campaign). As per reports, saplings will be planted along Badi Chaupad, Chhoti Chaupad and the divider of the Chandpole Bazaar under this initiative.

Civic body to develop areas that have lost their green covers

As per reports, the dividers of Gangauri Market, Hawa Mahal Road, Ramganj Market, Ghatgate Market, Tripolia Market, Johri Market and Kishanpole Market also expect a green revamp with the plantation of ornamental trees. Besides the divider, the Landscape Scheme of the smart city project in the Kishanpole Market will also be developed under this initiative.

Reportedly, a horticulturist informed that those areas will be identified under this project, which lost their green cover due to different reasons. Notably, a number of big trees were cut during the construction of Jaipur Metro across Parkota, Badi Chaupad, Chhoti Chaupad and Chandpole Market. Now, fresh saplings will be planted there and the civic body has also converged its attention on the Parkota region.
