Jun 14, 2024 07:07 PM IST

While many lauded the IAS officer’s efforts for sustainable networking, others said that they wanted the seed-infused card right away.

An Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer took to X to share his innovative and sustainable approach to networking. Shubham Gupta, Municipal Commissioner of Sangli-Miraj-Kupwad Municipal Corporation in Maharashtra, has visiting cards that have marigold seeds embedded in them. This means that instead of throwing away the card one can plant it in the soil, and it will grow into a marigold plant - bearing beautiful yellow-coloured flowers. Yes, you read that right!
