Moreover, trees will be planted in various societies and saplings will also be distributed door-to-door. In this manner, by September 17th -70,000 trees/plants will be planted in the city by the hands of various leaders and dignitaries of the society. A pledge will also be taken to take care of all these trees which will be planted. Nirav Shah has received GUJARAT BOOK OF RECORD for planting 70000 trees on the occasion of PM Narendra Modi Ji's birthday, the certificate was handed over by Rajesh Maheshwri, President of GBR, and in talk with him, he mentioned that the team was there with Nirav shah for all this day and have observed it properly, and he has made that of record which we also like to give, which is in the betterment of society.

This campaign has started from the morning of September 6th by planting trees in the open plot beside Bhagwan Mahavir College located in Bhimrad area of the city. This campaign was inaugurated by Gujarat State BJP President and Member of Parliament CR Paatil, Minister - Ganpat Vasava, Minister Kumar Kanani, Member of Parliament - Darshana Jardosh, Surat City Mayor - Jagdish Patel, BJP City President Nitin Bhajiyawala, and MLA Purnesh Modi.

There are various organizations and people associated with the campaign to make Surat Greener, which are Project Surat, Maruti Veer Jawan Trust - Surat, CREDAI - Surat, Nature Club Surat, Youth Nation - Surat, Hearts Work Foundation, Mission Green - Katargam, and Mahavir Eco Projects.
