Delhi will soon have its own world-class plants nursery. The Lieutenant Governor of Delhi Vinai Kumar Saxena has instructed Delhi Development Authority to put forth a plan of action with a concrete timeline within a week. A 25-acre plot situated in Khoja Wala Bagh, Ashok Vihar in Delhi, has been identified to conceptualize the nursery.
The proposed nursery once developed will have different varieties of indigenous, medicinal, exotic, ecology, and topography-compliant flora available for use by government agencies as well as the citizens. It will also house landscaped greens, a cafeteria, walkways, public utilities, and an inherent flower display that would serve as a recreational destination and tourist attraction for people of the City and visitors.
