Small house owners in Gurugram must plant at least one tree
The MCG House passed as many as 29 of 31 proposals that were taken up in a meeting on Wednesday. These included changes in the building code to ensure that anyone constructing a house on an area more than 250 sq m has to plant at least one tree and provide for temporary toilets for labourers working at the site.
The House also approved a plantation drive along the main stretches of the city and vertical gardens at various intersections. “We will ensure maximum citizen participation for the success of the plantation drives,” said MCG commissioner Yashpal Yadav.
It was also decided that the corporation will tie up with the cops and ensure verification of tenants living within municipal limits. “The increasing number of crimes is happening on account of outsiders living in the city without proper police verification,” said mayor Madhu Azad.
