A few steps from the Barapullah drain in Delhi, a lush green patch can easily be spotted. This patch was once considered a marsh full of sewage, and is located near the Sun-Dial Park, at Sarai Kale Khan in south Delhi.

This is actually considered the second part of the Union government’s Department of Biotechnology (DBT) and Delhi Development Authority (DDA)’s project to clean the Barapullah drain. Over the past six months, total of 2,281 native saplings of 44 different species have been planted and this planting is considered part of the project.

It’s considered open to the public and the two departments plan to cover the entire patch spread across with saplings.
