CPWD invites bids from agencies to collect jamun from trees at Kartavya Path in Delhi

New Delhi:

People visiting Kartavya Path will no longer be allowed to pluck jamun from trees after the CPWD issued a notice inviting bids from agencies to collect the fruit.

An official said the move will boost revenues and stop the practice of throwing stones at the fruits, preventing injuries to visitors.

The Central Public Works Department (CPWD), under the Union Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, has invited bids for an open auction that will see the successful bidder collect the fruits from the site till August 31.
