  • The National Highways Authority of India has developed a mobile App called Harit Path recently.
  • Its Aim is to monitor location, growth, species details, maintenance activities, targets and achievements for each and every plant under all plantation projects.
  • The app will monitor the plantations through geo-tagging and web-based GIS enabled monitoring tools.
  • It emphasizes on strict monitoring of plantation and transplantation of trees.
  • The Ministry of Road Transport & Highways suggested that specialised persons/agencies should be hired for plantation of trees along the highways.
  • It plans to involve NGOs, Self-help groups and Horticulture and Forest department for the purpose.
  • This will be done to achieve the goal of 100% plantation on highways up to March 2022.
  • The photographs along with data of the plants captured using Harit Path App shall be uploaded every 3 months on NHAI’s AI powered Big Data Analytics platform – Data Lake.
