With the recent nature-driven developments in the capital, we’re all breathing sighs of relief because it seems like the Delhi authorities have been churning out good news on a roll! Just the other day, we read about the Green Island’ story and now again, we have news on similar lines.

The much awaited rose garden in Dwarka’s Sector-16C is now open to the public and this verdant sprawling area houses around 90 variants of roses, that have been specially brought in from Kolkata! Wow, whaaat!

The authorities have also set-up a fruit garden and herbal garden and these 3 spaces together are under the ‘green zone’ in Sector-16C. These features of this locale will certainly pull in people from every nook and cranny of the city and we’re sure it’ll be a sight to behold! (Get your cameras ready!)

Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal, on Monday, inaugurated the ‘Van Mahotsav’ and Rose Garden, which has been developed by the Delhi Development Authority!

According to reports by TOI, 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.”

DDA Vice-Chairman also commented saying, “Around 200 eco-clubs of various schools will be part of the drive and a grant of ₹25,000 per year will be allotted to them for maintenance and protection of the planted saplings. RWAs are being involved to make the drive a success!”

Delhi has been time and again, tagged as a city with soaring pollution levels but these drives are revamping the city with such eco-friendly makeovers! So by the end of 2019, we’re hoping to see more of these green initiatives and hopefully, other cities will be following suit soon.
