Green Republic Day at NIO
Continuing with its endeavor towards creation of greener environments, CSIR-National Institute of Oceanography celebrated the republic day with a tree plantation drive by the Director, Dr. SWA Naqvi and the staff of its Dispensary at NIO colony, Dona Paula. Considering its medicinal value, the seedlings selected for plantation this year were that of Neem.
NIO has initiated the tradition of tree plantation at the hands of their staff members who are retiring every month as well as on national holidays such as the Independence Day in order to promote greenery at its office campus and residential colony. Several staff members and a German Scientist Dr. Victor Smetacheck joined the drive.
Earlier in the morning, Dr. Naqvi hoisted the flag and enthused the gathering to strive towards accomplishing the mission of NIO which aims at improving our understanding of the seas around us for the benefit of society. On this occasion, prizes were distributed to the winners of various indoor and outdoor tournaments for the staff members and their families.
