IRMA won first prize for its afforestation programme on May 30, 2018. Prizes for the programme were distributed by the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEF&CC) during a valedictory function at the Regional Museum of Natural History in Bhopal on June 5, 2018.
It may be recalled that the institute had launched a tree plantation drive on the eve of the World Environment Day. The theme ‘Beat Plastic Pollution' was highlighted by eschewing plastic while efforts were made to green the 60-acre campus. Water, for instance, was served in paper instead of plastic.
Ms. Divya Yadav of PRM 38 has collected the award on behalf of the Institute.
