For projects valuing between Rs 100 crore and 300 crore, the contractors will now have to plant and maintain 500 trees plus 2 trees for each Rs.1 crore value above Rs 100 crore. Similarly, for projects valued at over Rs. 300 crore, the contractors will have to plant and maintain 1,000 trees plus 1 tree for each Rs.1 Crore value above Rs. 300 crores.
“The contractor at his own cost will plant at least 5-feet-high trees of different varieties at the project site, or in any specified area within the radius of 20 kms if the space is not available at the project site. This will be with the approval of engineer in charge, within six months from handing over of site to the contractor by NBCC,” the company has notified vide a circular.
Speaking on the development, Dr. Anoop Kumar Mittal, Chairman-cum-Managing Director of NBCC said, “We are an environment-conscious corporate and sustainable development is our constant endeavour. In our ongoing green initiative, we have conducted plantation drives at all our project sites and planted 23,865 trees this monsoon season.”
