What is Van Mahotsav?
The Delhi Government is to celebrate â€˜Van Mahotsavâ€™ from June 26 to July 11 as part of an initiative to plant 33 lakh sampling across the city this year. Under this initiative, saplings of various medicinal plants will be made available in 14 government-run nurseries at free of cost from June 7. A booklet describing all the plants available in these nurseries was recently released by the government.
With this initiative, the Delhi government is looking to reduce the air pollution in the city. All government departments and NGOs are roped in for implementing this initiative.
