At a cost of Rs 4.11 crore, this tree planting drive in 306 springsheds will be in tune with this year’s World Environment Day theme on “Air Pollution”.

This project envisages to address the challenges and the threat to the springs of the State which are the source of water and to ensure sustained yield and availability, especially during the lean dry months.
