The ongoing mission of Marut Drones “Hara Bhara Campaign” has successfully utilized the Seedcopter to plant One Billion Trees by 2030. The success of Seedcopter is seen in the plantation of more than one crore trees across 9 states like Telangana, Arunachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand, Tamil Nadu and Assam in 2022. The mission of Marut is to restore 900 forests through ‘Hara-Bahara’ campaign which is already well underway.
Actor and environmental advocate Rana Daggubati, has joined Marut Drones on this mission in 2021, with the objective of increasing the forest cover in India through afforestation making use of the Seedcopter.
CEO of Marut Drones, Prem Kumar Vislawath while speaking at the launch, expressed his enthusiasm at making Seedcopter 2.0 available for corporate use with a CSR perspective. He was hopeful of extending the reach of drone technology to invite more stakeholders in contributing to India’s Green cover.
