Tree Plantation Drive at GNDEC


Tree plantation drive to usher in the Greening of Punjab was inaugurated at the sprawling campus of Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College, Ludhiana.

The enthusiasm demonstrated by the students was a real treat to watch. All this bodes well for the ecological balance which is sadly missing from the environment due to industrialization and rapid burning of fuel.

The plantation drive was inaugurated by Dr. Manohar Singh Saini, Director, Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College. During the Drive all Head of Departments, Deans, senior faculty, students, staff were actively present and contributed their mite in the greening of the campus.
