70% trees transplanted by MMRC in Aarey Colony have dried up: ACG members
Environmental activists have taken strong objection to the manner in which trees were transplanted by the Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC) after they found that over 70% of them had dried up.
Members of Aarey Conservation Group (ACG) on Friday carried out a ground reality check in Aarey Colony, where the car shed for the Metro 3 is coming up. “We found that the trees have been transplanted abruptly, and in a wrong manner. Some trees were transplanted under the

shade of two mango trees,” said Amrita Bhattacharjee, a member. She alleged that neither these trees were planted properly nor were they maintained.
Another activist said, “A minimum distance has to be maintained between two trees, but we found that six big trees were planted at a distance of maximum 8 to 10 feet, which raises doubt if the MMRC really wants these transplanted trees to survive?” “It is clear that they are just counting numbers and they do not care about the survival of these trees. The tree committee is visiting Aarey transplantation site for inspection in July and such apathies will be highlighted during the meeting,” said Zoru Bathena, another member.
When contacted, R. Ramanna, executive director of MMRC, said, “This is being monitored by the tree authority and by the committee appointed by the High Court. Whatever lacuna brought to our notice will be rectified.”
“Let me tell you that of the 1,774 trees, we have transplanted only 357 trees, and will rectify the process in remaining 80%,” he said.

For FMs, we require members to promise to abide by the guidelines and be free of controversies. For other Monitors, we require the member to be in good standing. . However, "eligibility" does NOT always mean...

    @all: While we do nominally allow multiple IDs, these multiple IDs are NOT allowed to engage in misuse and "mischief". Voting multiple times in the same poll using multiple IDs, rating each other IDs' blogs using multiple IDs, etc. are classified as "gross misuse". . This is an advance notice that some of the...

A PUBLIC info website is unlike WhatsApp, FaceBook, Instagram, etc. where people post personal pics and other stuff, which CAN...
