Register Your Mobile for New Town News and Events

In course of observing World Environment Day in New Town, we launched the "Register Your Mobile for New Town News" . Anyone can send an SMS to 92300 60000 with the words and get a confirmation that it has been registered. The first "broadcast" we made was as follows:
"New Town Kolkata observes World Environment Day on 5th June 2017. Make your city Green by planting trees. Green New Town - Clean New Town. Chairman NKDA & HIDCO."

Launching 92300 60000 today
We also planted 60 Neem Saplings. Each officer present from Hidco, NKDA, PHED and Forest planted one and would be responsible for its adoption and survival.

60 Neem Saplings
On behalf of P C Chanda, Mr A K Chanda was present. The group would present 1,000 neem saplings that would be planted in the same area (near Owl More, in AA2). We announced an essay / story / poem of 1,000 words on "Green New Town" and selected essays would be published in a book form and the best submission would get a prize. Mr Chanda agreed to sponsor both.
