Name of the Department: Forest Department
Purpose of the project: Under this project a sapling will be distributed to every new born child at the time of release from the hospital. Parents of the baby will be requested to name the tree after the name of the child. As the child attains youth the sapling grows into a tree, not only offering flowers, fruits and oxygen but also ensuring financial prosperity of the child. The project was initiated by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on 19 December, 2016.
The project will increase awareness and attach values about environment and society to the younger generation. The project will transform Bengal into a Green Bengal.
Beneficiaries: All new born babies of the state.
