A project is preserving all existing trees. According to criterion 02 (GRIHA Version 3), “plantation should be in excess of 25% than minimum requirement within the site premise"? Please specify the minimum requirement in this case.
The mandatory requirement of criterion 02 (GRIHA Version 3) is that compensatory plantation must be done in the proportion of 1:3. For one more point, the project team may plant trees in excess of 25% than minimum requirement within the site premise.
For example, if the project cuts 10 trees, then to meet the mandatory requirement and achieve 1 point, the project must replant 30 trees. Further, to achieve 2 points, the project must replant trees in 25% excess of 30; i.e. 30 + 7.5 (or 8). So, if the project replants 38 trees, it will meet the mandatory requirement as well as achieve 2 points.
