According to sources, around 70 officials from the Union Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change will initiate the joint campaign. Officials from the environment department of Delhi government, three Delhi Municipal Corporations, New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) and Delhi Cantonment will also join the campaign.

A letter from the Union Ministry of Environment has been sent to the municipal bodies in this regard. The municipal corporations have been advised to involve RWAs, market associations, shopkeepers associations and individuals to ensure the success of the campaign.

“The idea of this joint campaign is to sensitise ground-level functionaries and general public of the city and to inculcate environment-friendly habits in them,” the letter written by Union Environment Minister, Harsh Vardhan, who is an MP from Delhi, reads.

A senior official of East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) who told City Spidey about this campaign, however stated that they do not have the details of the campaign programme. “It’s not a state government, but a central government initiative. CPCB and DPCC will be leading the campaign, so I am not very clear what the detailed programme is,” he said.
