  • | Saturday | 1st August, 2020

Yadav claims that before starting the plantation he had approached DFO, Conservator and Chief Conservator, Gurugram for seeking permission and submitted an application with a NOC by the Panchayat of village Manesar to carry out the plantation.

Krishna Arravali Foundation, an organisation working for improving the plantation in Arravali Hills falling in the state of Haryana, allege that the Forest Officials of the state are stopping them from continuing their voluntary service of planting trees in one of the degraded areas of Arravali.

Krishna Kumar Yadav of Krishna Arravali Foundation claim that after they planted some 3000 local plants in the area, with the collaboration of Panchayat and Hydra greens, some Junior officials of the forest department came on the site and stopped the work. Yadav was told to report to the Divisional Forest Official (DFO) for a written permission to continue the plantation.

Yadav also claims that before starting the plantation he had approached DFO, Conservator and Chief Conservator, Gurugram for seeking permission and submitted an application with a NOC by the Panchayat of village Manesar to carry out the plantation. He was then advised that no permission is required for improving the forest cover.

However, since the stoppage of work Yadav is making continuous rounds to the office of DFO and Conservator but no permission to continue the plantation has been provided yet.
