To register as a Paryvaran Mitra, which roughly translates to friend of the environment, Rai said one simply needed to give a missed call on the toll-free number 8448441758, following which the government starts the registration process.

“Paryavaran Mitras are an opportunity for lakhs of citizens of Delhi to know how they can become allies and partners in the fight against pollution. After making a missed call, in a very simple way, you will have to fill a registration form comprising of 3-4 questions on WhatsApp. After that, the environment department will contact you for the next step,” he said.

The minister said the main objective of launching Paryavaran Mitra programme was to create a network of people in Delhi who have the awareness, knowledge, commitment, and can look into environmental sustainability.
