Chandigarh Celebrates ‘Paudh Mela’ to Promote Greenery and Environmental Sustainability

On July 6th, 2024 : Shri Rajeev Verma, IAS, Adviser to the Administrator of the Union Territory of Chandigarh, inaugurated the ‘Paudh Mela’ at the Lake Sports Complex parking area. The event, aimed at encouraging environmental conservation, saw a large turnout of enthusiastic citizens.

The Mela featured free distribution stalls by the Department of Forest and Wildlife, Engineering Department, and the Municipal Corporation, offering a variety of saplings to the public. Additionally, stalls from Self-Help Groups (SHGs), NGOs, schools, and colleges showcased products and information related to composting, organic farming, and renewable energy initiatives.

In his address, Shri Verma emphasized the importance of the ‘Ek Ped Maa Ke Naam’ campaign, urging everyone to plant at least one tree during the monsoon season. Prizes were also distributed to students for their outstanding performance in events organized by the Forest Department on World Biodiversity Day.

The Paudh Mela will continue for two days, with the Chandigarh Renewable Energy and Science & Technology Promotion Society (CREST) promoting the PM Surya Ghar Muft Bijali Yozna, a government initiative to provide free electricity through solar power.
