STC Sheeri organizes plantation drive

Baramulla, Mar 12 : An annual plantation drive-2019 was organized by Subsidiary Training Centre (STC) in Sheeri area of north Kashmir’s Baramulla district.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

The plantation drive was organised by Principal STC Sheeri, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Farooq Ahmad in collaboration with Forest Department and Rahim Greens Srinagar.

The plantation drive was carried out in the premises of STC Sheeri.
Speaking on the occasion, SSP Farooq Ahmad said that the drive was started with the purpose to enhance the green cover in the Area and to create an eco-friendly environment.

On the occasion, DFO Baramulla Javid Ahmad said that 1000 trees of different varieties and species obtained from Social Forestry and Rahim Greens were planted by the recruits undergoing training in the Centre.

SSP STC and DFO Baramulla requested participants to go for maximum plantation of saplings during current month as it is favourable month for planting trees.
