A popular tourist destination in India, Jaipur is the capital and the largest city of Rajasthan. Founded in 1727, it is known as one of the earliest planned cities of modern India. On 6 July 2019, UNESCO World Heritage Committee inscribed Jaipur the ‘Pink City of India’ among its World Heritage Sites. All this recognition and flow of tourists makes it important that the city's environment should be protected and nourished.
Mitsubishi Electric India organised a Tree Plantation and planted around 200 trees in Madhav Kanan Park, Nehru Nagar, Jaipur, Rajasthan. More than 10 employees from MEI and 20 volunteers from NGOs participated in the tree plantation drive that took place on Tuesday. The trees planted at the site included Kadam, Bell Patra, Neem, Sagaun and Shisham. These evergreen plants are according to state's environment and are known to grow well.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Katsunori Ushiku, Managing Director, Mitsubishi Electric India Pvt.
