With a view to check environment degradation and make surroundings clean and green, a major plantation drive was initiated on Friday by the Khalsa College Governing Council (KCGC) at Khalsa College.

The Council plans to plant more than 2,000 saplings at all its 17 educational institutions in this season, said KCGC president Stayajit Singh Majithia, who inaugurated the drive.

Majithia directed the heads of all institutions to plant more and more trees and also ensure that the saplings planted are taken care of well to help them develop into grown up trees.

The KCGC, he said, aims to plant over 4,000 plants in the coming one month as part of its annual drive in monsoons. The council has tied up with the Pingalwara Society also which is donating trees and plants.
