The Punjab Government has launched a novel initiative in the form of ‘i-Hariyali’ app as part of the strategy formulated under Mission Tandarust Punjab to ensure clean, green, healthy and robust Punjab with the active participation of the masses. The main characteristic of the app is that any resident of the state can book a sapling of his/her choice sitting at home with the click of a button.Another unique feature of the app is that this facility can be availed of by every resident of the state to book sapling of his choice from a nearby government nursery. The app can be downloaded from mobile play store absolutely free of cost. The rationale behind this app is to inspire more and more people to plant maximum saplings during the current monsoon season so as to save the environment from pollution hazards. A condition of proper upkeep and care of the saplings has also been imposed.After booking the saplings, the contact number of the nearby employee or forest guard would be displayed on the mobile of the person making the booking. It is interesting to note that under this process every person would be given maximum of 25 saplings.Understanding its responsibility to conceive and put into action out of the box plans to save environment from further degradation and pollution besides ensuring cleaner air and water & other resources, the Mission Tandarust Punjab has been commenced by the state government.The Forest Minister, Punjab, Mr. Sadhu Singh Dharamsot has exhorted all the stakeholders to plant the saplings in large number in order to ensure a clean and green Punjab.
