Green Move : In UP Cut One Tree Only If You Plant Ten Saplings

LUCKNOW || In a major bid to ensure the growth of forest cover and to protect the environment, the BJP government in Uttar Pradesh has come out with fresh guidelines for bio-diversity, an official said on Monday. A proposal to this effect was ratified by the state cabinet presided over by the chief minister Yogi Adityanath.

Under the new guidelines, in case of necessity like in expansion of roads and another infrastructure project, a tree can only be cut if ten other saplings are planted. In case there is non-availability of land or place to plant the trees, one would have to deposit money online to the forest department, the official further informed.
