Agarwal recently undertook a tree plantation initiative by planting 756 saplings at their Chuzachan project site in Rongli, Sikkim. The tree plantation drive aims at planting a total of one lakh saplings during this monsoon season. The saplings to be planted include fruits, flowers, ashoka, bamboo and broom. Recently, Gati Infrastructure had entered into an agreement with the State Government of Sikkim to implement three hydro power projects on a Build, Operate, Own and Transfer basis (BOOT). The first project – 110MW Chuzachen Hydro Project on Rangpo and Rongli rivers has been commissioned and started production. “The plantation of trees will uphold the commitment the project has towards the protection of the environment at the Chuzachan project,” said Gati sources. The saplings would be planted in and around the power house and on the borders of the project towards the road. The sources also maintained that at Gati Infrastructure, every project includes a social commitment to contribute to the economic development while improving the quality of life of the workforce and their families as well as of the local community and society at large. The company’s CSR activities include education, self-managed rural institutions, health, livelihood and food security, capacity building, generation of awareness and sponsorships.
