Stop chopping of 16000 Trees in South Delhi for Redevelopment Project

0 have signed. Let’s get to 50,000!

The residents of south Delhi are set to pay the price for the redevelopment projects around seven neighbourhoods, which include Sarojini Nagar, Nauroji Nagar and Netaji Nagar. The forest department has given the permission to chop off at least 16,500 full grown trees to make way for redeveloping of Central government accommodations in the area.

The environment impact assessment report for the projects around south Delhi shows that 11,000 out of 13,128 trees will be cut in Sarojini Nagar, 1,465 out of 1,513 will be cut in Nauroji Nagar, 3,033 out of the total 3,906 trees will be chopped off from Netaji Nagar and another 520 will be felled from Kasturba Nagar, which has a cover of as many trees. The figures for RK Puram are yet to be released.

In smaller neighbourhoods such as Thyagaraja Nagar and Mohammadpur 108 and 447 trees will be cut for the project, according to the environmental impact assessment (EIA) clearance. Experts and residents have raised alarm against such mass felling of these residential pockets, which are known to be the green belt of the city.

just imagine the amount of pollution we have currently and what will going to happen if more than 90 percent trees are gone. Will we able to survive the pollution this time?
