On the onset of the spring season, PCRWR celebrated “Plantation Day” on Sunday i.e. 12th February, 2017. The event was held at its Research and Demonstration Centre for Barani Areas, which is situated 50 km away from Islamabad at Darkali Kalan (Tehsil Gujar Khan). All officials of the Council were invited to participate. Around 45 officers/officials attended the event including Dr. Muhammad Ashraf, Chairman, Mr. Saeed Javed, Secretary and Dr. Ashfaq Ahmad Sheikh, Director General, PCRWR and Dr. Manzoor Ahmad Malik, Director. Some Ex-officers also participated like Dr. Muhammad Abdullah, Mrs. Nuzhat Yasmin, Ex-Secretaries, Mr. Zafar Iqbal Khan, Ex-Director (Admn.) were present with their families. They planted trees (fig, olives) in their names at different places of the centre.

A nursery has been developed at the Centre for plantation of trees and shrubs namely fig, tamarix, olives, artiplex and salt bush etc. A number of trees were planted by the officials. Refreshment and lunch was served to the participants along with the distribution of citrus fruits on nominal payments. Speaking on the occasion, the Chairman, PCRWR told that such events are held not only for plantation but to develop ownership and interaction among the officials. It is heartening to know that many ex-officers of the Council have come with their families, which show their devotion to the institute, he added.
