Jamshedpur: Jamshedpur Notified Area Committee launched �Mera Poudha, Meri Santaan� (my sapling, my child) campaign on the first day of Shravan month on Saturday. The campaign was started with the view to intensify plantation drive all over the city. Under the drive, saplings would be gifted to all parents getting birth certificates from the JNAC throughout the month of Shravan.
Special Officer Sanjay Kumar gave one sapling each to six parents at a function organized on the JNAC premises on Saturday. He said those parents who had planted a sapling to mark the birth of their child would be given birth certificates free of cost.
The parents who were given saplings today are Mukesh Thakur, Swarup Dey, Sumit Mishra, Neelesh Kumar, Dukhi Ram and Buby Singh.
