With the objective of covering 40 per cent of IIT-Hyderabad’s area with greenery, the institute launched the ‘Green Campus’ drive by involving the students, staff and faculty in the mass plantation drive. Each of the student, staff and faculty in IIT-H will plant one sapling each on the premises of the campus and adopt the same plant. The plants will not only be geo-tagged to monitor its growth and health, but the person who adopted the plant will also monitor the sapling regularly. Following the instructions of IIT-H director, Prof. UB Desai, a three-member faculty designed a programme making the involvement of each person on the campus mandatory. Speaking to Telangana Today, a key member of the plantation committee, KBVN Phanindra, who is also working as an Assistant Professor at Department of Civil Engineering, said that the director wanted to cover 40 per cent of the 565 acres of land the campus is spread over with greenery.
