As per the details the department has initiated the drive to plant 15000 saplings in the first phase and the rest would be planted afterwards. The plantation drive on these roads would be completed within the monsoon season without any sort of delay.

Meanwhile, the Principal Chief Conservator of Forests Mr. Jatinder Sharma reviewed the plantation drive initiated by the department and asked the officers to ensure that work was completed in a time bound and professional manner.
