Prime Minister Narendra Modi has highlighted India’s commitment in the Paris Climate Agreement, earlier this year. India is the third largest in carbon emissions in the world. We have also pledged to increase our forest cover by five million hectares before 2030. This is one of the chief factors behind these plantation drives being carried out on such a large and record-breaking scale. Even the Nagpur drive was registered in the Limca Book of Records. These campaigns are an excellent example of citizen participation and government involvement in environmental preservation. But the efficiency and success of these movements can only be determined by the final outcome.
