Protection of urban/semi-urban environments for the sake of our childrens' future!

Cities in India are witnessing tremendous development due to the steady growth in commerce and economic activities across the country. This development has provided immense opportunity to builders and developers who have exploited cities and surroundings in order to provide residential accommodation to us 'city dwellers'.

Unfortunately, this development has come at the cost of the environment with lakes and water bodies within city limits and their outskirts, getting encroached upon and the density of population increasing tremendously within the city limits. This has resulted in steadily increasing average temperatures and drought like conditions across the country. City administrators today, are struggling to meet the requirement for clean water across most major cities in the country, leave alone water for irrigation and farming which, many would say is more important.

Its time the government started to regulate the real estate industry, not just to ensure transparency in financial transactions, but also to curb the rampant destruction of the environment for selfish, personal financial gain.

Please support this petition, for the sake of our children. If not, we will not be leaving much for them to live in.
