On this occasion, the LG also visited a local city forest developed by the Forest Department and planted Guava saplings there. Member of Parliament (North-West Delhi), Shri Hans Raj Hans, Chief Secretary, Shri Naresh Kumar, Principal Secretaries of the Environment & Forest Department, GNCTD, I&FC, GNCTD, Commissioner, MCD and senior officials of DDA and other stakeholder agencies were present on the occasion. 
This is the second visit of the LG to Qutabgarh village, previously on 02nd September, 2022, where he had distributed 1000 saplings of Sandalwood to 500 local farmers, in order to provide the city with a fragrant green cover.

Addressing the villagers, the LG said that with participation of the local farmers, Qutabgarh could develop into a major producer of Guava, which is at present coming in Delhi from neighbouring states including Rajasthan. Similarly, the plantation of Grapes in Delhi also aimed at enhancing the diversity of flora in Delhi. The LG said the local production of Guava and Grapes would make the farmers financially self-sustainable, while also increasing the crop area in Delhi. He said that the farmers will be trained in Grape cultivation at Krishi Vigyan Kendra. 

The Forest Department has also planted 600 saplings of various flower and fruit bearing trees including Jackaranda, Gulmohar, Gudhal, Guavas etc. This City Forest is also witnessing various other development works like walking track of 1 km, widening and deepening of pond, installation of bamboo huts and construction of toilet and other public amenities. This development will promote eco-tourism in the village and also support sustainable and healthy living among the villagers. 

LG also visited a private plantation site where the villagers have planted guava saplings on their own. The LG     was informed that the villagers have identified 6.5 bighas of land for guava plantation and more such land is being identified. 

Hundreds of farmers who had assembled to welcome the LG, profusely thanked him for all the steps being taken under his guidance to develop Qutabgarh into a model village. The LG inspected a MCD dispensary in the village and directed officials to upgrade this into a poly clinic and make it operational at the earliest. The LG was informed that 3 specialized doctors have already been posted at the Dispensary recently and other necessary equipment and facilities will be put in place soon. 

The villagers urged the LG to provide a wrestling facility for women in the village, which has produced a number of wrestlers and athletes in recent years. To this, the LG immediately directed DDA to identify a suitable space and make the necessary arrangements at the earliest.   

The LG also visited Mungeshpur drain site where I&FC Department is working on desilting and beautification of the drain. A 200 meter walking track has already been built by the Department while bamboo saplings have also been planted along the drain, so as to give an aesthetic makeover and increase the green cover in the area. 

The LG has also directed the DDA to develop 02 water bodies and 04 parks in the village and carry out the necessary maintenance works at an existing pond in the village.
