India’s NDMC To Use Blockchain Technology To Monitor 10,000 Planted Saplings
The blockchain technology has been able to find multiple applications in the various sectors; this is since its inception. It is from easy tracking of supply goods to healthcare, to even being able to conduct an entire election. The blockchain technology has been able to stand the test of time and has proved to the various users in the market that it is a beneficial platform.
No country wants to be left behind as India has also gone ahead to embrace the technology. They have gone ahead to integrate it into the various industries they have in place. The one government that has been proactive with the idea is the government of Telangana; it is by taking the needed steps in developing the very first India’s blockchain district.
More Is Getting Done
The NDMC, New Delhi Municipal Council, recently made a noble initiative by having a mass plantation drive. NDMC organized the drive, and from this, around 10,000 saplings were successfully planted. On September 8th is when the drive took place, and it was able to attract participants in very large numbers.
The one thing that was amusing about the drive was the fact that the municipal was able to use the blockchain technology and geo tagging to help in monitoring the saplings; as a result, this would assist in ensuring that each is being cared for properly.
The NDMC made a statement clarifying that there has been over 33,895 shrubs, 10,000 saplings, 377,650 in ground cover plants and about 23 palm trees that were successfully planted. All this was done in the 14 circles of the corporation.
The famous sites that are around Delhi were actually trained during the drive. And some of the tree species got planted along several roads plus Central Park that is in Connaught Place. Some of the species that were planted included Peepal, Neem, Jamun, Tamarind, Arjun and Ashok.
To ensure that the drive is a continuous success, all the 10,000 saplings will be closely monitored with the use of the blockchain technology. By the end of the month, you should expect to see the geotagging project complete; this is all according to Naresh Kumar the Chairman of NDMC.
