As part of its initiatives impacting the environment, IndiGoReach, the CSR arm of India’s leading carrier, IndiGo, has undertaken a project towards the “Eco-restoration and conservation of the watershed area and water body at Sikanderpur, Gurugram.
Under this initiative, IndiGoReach will support the project which is aimed at ensuring environmental stability in Sikandarpur area. IndiGo will fund the initial cleaning of the waterbody at Sikandarpur Pond and an open watershed area next to the Sikanderpur village, which is also an extension of the ridge connecting Sikandarpur village to 9A road, Gurugram. The revival of the Sikandarpur Pond and its surrounding areas will enhance the quality of life of people using and living around it.
In its current form, the Sikandarpur Pond has become a cesspool of sewage, with waste water coming from Sikandarpur and the surrounding buildings. It is also covered with water hyacinths and has been encroached on several sides by migrants, as well as residents of the surrounding areas.
The Sikandarpur Pond and its surrounding areas have become a spot for dumping of garbage, sewage flow and illegal encroachment, company said.
This project by IndiGoReach, aims to improve the conditions to benefit the residents of the surrounding neighbourhoods, people working in the nearby areas, as well as the transit population that uses the Sikandarpur Pond Area to cut across or use the metro.
