As Delhi is experiencing scorching temperatures, with certain parts of the city reaching nearly 50 degrees Celsius, the National Capital Region Transport Corporation is busy planting trees.

NCRTC aims to plant more than 2.5 lakh trees along the Regional Rapid Transit System(RRTC)corridor in the national capital corridor.

The corridor covers Sahibabad to Shatabdi Nagar in Meerut, a statement issued by NCRTC said on Wednesday.  

This initiative aims to contribute to the green cover and sustainable environment, aligning with global environmental protection goals, it said. 

Half of these saplings are being planted in the median under the viaduct along the 48-km RRTS corridor from Sahibabad to Shatabdi Nagar in Meerut where more than 95 per cent of the tree plantation works have been completed, it said.
