Noida: Aiming to maintain cleanliness in their residential pockets, residents of highrises in Sector 137, Noida on Saturday morning came out of their homes for carrying out plogging drive. They picked up waste like plastic carry bags, papers and thermocol sheets, lying on roadsides and in the parks.
The drive was carried out in association with Noida Industrial Development Authority, the nodal agency that is aiming to improve the ranking of the city in survey of Clean India Mission program.
