"It is mandatory for all fresh students at nine colleges affiliated to the Delhi University, managed by the Committee, to plant 10 trees from the current academic session to celebrate Guru Nanak Dev's love for nature," Manjinder Singh Sirsa, DSGMC president said.

The DSGMC will be distributing free saplings of plants and trees mentioned in the Gurbani such as Neem and Ber along with other species which are beneficial for the environment.
