A remarkable stride towards environmental stewardship, Haryana has unveiled a revolutionary initiative, the “Pran Vayu Devta Pension Scheme,” offering an annual pension of ₹2,750 to trees aged 70 years and above. This visionary move, set to launch on November 1st, signifies a monumental step in recognizing and rewarding the invaluable contribution of our arboreal companions.

The First of Its Kind

Haryana takes center stage as the first state in India to embark on this eco-conscious journey, reinforcing its commitment to environmental sustainability and innovative conservation measures.

Direct Benefits to Beneficiaries

This unprecedented pension scheme ensures direct deposits of the annual pension into the bank accounts of eligible trees, demonstrating a seamless and efficient process in acknowledging their years of dedicated service to the environment.

Visionary Leadership

Championed by the Minister of Environment, Forest, and Wildlife, Kanwar Pal, this initiative was unveiled during the state-level Wildlife Protection Week at the picturesque Hathi Kund Barrage in Khand Pratapnagar. Minister Kanwar Pal shared insights into the government’s broader environmental conservation strategies, highlighting the significance of preserving diverse ecosystems.

Upcoming Kalesar Jungle Safari

The announcement coincided with the revelation of the forthcoming Kalesar Jungle Safari, promising an immersive experience in nature. The minister underscored the importance of maintaining ecological balance by implementing measures to counteract the impact of insects on crops.

Protecting Raptors and Wildlife

The government’s commitment to wildlife preservation is further emphasized by the establishment of a Giddh (vulture) breeding center in Pinjore. This initiative seeks to bolster the vulture population, contributing to the ecological equilibrium. Additional breeding centers for peafowl, deer, crocodiles, and the red junglefowl further exemplify Haryana’s multifaceted approach to wildlife conservation.

Setting a Global Example

Haryana’s “Pran Vayu Devta Pension Scheme” is not just a local innovation but a testament to the state’s global leadership in sustainable practices. As the world grapples with environmental challenges, Haryana stands tall as a beacon of inspiration, proving that thoughtful policies can create positive ripples for our planet.

This pioneering initiative invites applause, celebrating Haryana’s commitment to nurturing and protecting our green companions, and encouraging other regions to follow suit in fostering a harmonious coexistence with nature.

New Delhi: The “Women for Water, Water for Women” initiative, a groundbreaking project conducted by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA) in collaboration with the National Urban Livelihood Mission (NULM) and the Odisha Urban Academy, concluded with remarkable success on its third day, November 9, 2023. This transformative campaign, conducted under the flagship program Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT), was aimed at promoting women’s active involvement in water governance.

Spanning three days, the campaign witnessed the enthusiastic participation of more than 14,000 women from various regions of the country (excluding poll-bound States), who actively embraced “Jal Diwali.” Throughout the campaign, these empowered women embarked on visits to over 530 Water Treatment Plants (WTPs) across the nation, gaining invaluable firsthand insights into the intricate processes involved in delivering clean and safe drinking water to households.

State officials extended a warm welcome to the Self-Help Group (SHG) women, recognizing their pivotal role in the campaign’s resounding success. Field visit kits, containing essential items such as training manuals, water bottles, sippers, eco-friendly bags, and badges, were generously provided to all participants.

During the course of the campaign, women delved deeper into the realm of water infrastructure, receiving expert guidance on water quality testing protocols, and actively conducting these tests themselves. This newfound knowledge equips them to ensure the highest standards of water purity for their communities, reflecting a profound sense of ownership and responsibility toward water infrastructure.

The core focus areas of “Jal Diwali” encompassed acquainting and educating women about the extensive impact of the AMRUT scheme, providing comprehensive exposure to Water Treatment Plants, and fostering inclusivity through souvenirs and articles crafted by Women Self-Help Groups (SHGs). Additionally, participants pledged their commitment to conserving and responsibly utilizing water resources, a crucial step toward sustainable water management.

The combined endeavors of SHGs and State officials hailing from 29 States/Union Territories represent a significant leap toward inclusivity and women’s empowerment in the vital realm of water infrastructure.
