Glimpses of the cleanliness drive being undertaken by field offices of Department of Agriculture & Farmers’ Welfare during the Special Campaign 3.0:
Some unique Agricultural Implements were lying in Scrap at Northern Region Farm Machinery Training & Testing Institute, Hissar and were not in use and the repainting work of Unique Implements was started to exhibit at Main Gate of NRFMTTI, Hisar as a Beautification measure.
Director of this Institute decided to use these waste materials for beautification work. However, removing of old paint was a tedious job. The end result of the effort gives a charming look in TRI-COLOUR just at the main Entrance of the Institute Gate.
It is also evident that the best efforts have been put together to maximize the output which resulted excellent achievements against the targets flagged in various events.
