Bengal govt to set up green corridor near Gorumara Sanctuary in Dooars to create employment

The state government is planning to set up green corridor at Mal sub-division of Jalpaiguri district adjacent to Gorumara sanctuary which will not only present pollution free environment but will also create employment in the area. The district administration has a plan to start the work of setting up green corridor in various blocks of Jalpaiguri after Pujas. Around 5 lakh people from across the state and abroad visit Dooars every year. The proposed green corridor would come up in the area like Lataguri, Moulani under Mal block and Batabari, Baradighi and Chalsa and other adjoining areas of Metli block. Local families, hotels, resorts, schools would be included in the project. Various bio-degradable elements, kitchen produces collected from the hotels and resorts could be utilised for preparing organic manure.
