New Delhi: The National Green Highways Mission (NGHM), responsible for planning, implementing and monitoring the plantation of trees, will set up a Centre for Innovations in Green Pathways in order to enhance research and innovations in this field by involving various international organizations, research institutes and World Bank, The Energy and Resources Institute (Teri) and Yes Bank among others.
For this purpose, three memoranda of understanding (MoUs) were signed between the NGHM and three organizations—ITC Ltd, Yes Bank Ltd and Teri.
The government had launched NGHM last year as part of its green highways policy for plantation, transplantation, beautification and maintenance along the national highways.
