To encourage the plantation of more trees, Vikram university in Madhya Pradesh’s Ujjain is planning to impose a voluntary “green cess” on people who visit its campus every day for exercise.
It will ask the people to either pay the tax or plant saplings in the campus and conserve trees under its “green cess” policy.
According to vice-chancellor Akhilesh Kumar Pandey, this is being done to tackle the lack of oxygen in case of future pandemics. He added that artificial oxygen is only available for a short duration and highly expensive, whereas a small plant gives at least 750 litres of oxygen.”
