Experts divided over thousands of trees along floodplains
In the Yamuna floodplains of Garhi Mandu in northeast Delhi, hundreds of thousands of saplings and trees are being planted there in place of those felled for infrastructure projects. Sections of the floodplain near the Signature Bridge are visibly green, even from afar.
Such dense plantings on active floodplains are undesirable, said AK Gosain, professor emeritus at IIT-Delhi, who is a member of the expert committee set up by order of the NGT to monitor the rejuvenation of the river and its floodplains. “It’s the active floodplain, which means it gets flooded every year. All you put here is flow resistance. Plantings should be as far away from the floodplain as possible,” he said. he declares.
