Well, green cities doesn’t only include gardens or trees, all aspects are considered like ban of polythene bags, garbage, pollution. Well I see my city toping all aspects of a clean city! thus Chandigarh is surely city beautiful and ever green city.

No city is or can remain green if it has mindless concrete structures coming up, vehicles number and population growing. I would like to know if there are places in India which are actually green and could remain so for long time to come…would highly appreciate feedback from those who or their friends/relations are actually staying in those places and can throw some light on life there. Please help as I am looking for such place to move to from my current location- the mad Gurgaon and NCR in general.

About the Nagpur, its very wrong, nothing is like that, only 35 to 40 % Nagpur is green, rather i can say, its a Polluted and smogey city, Orange city is no far we can say (its a Sangha {RSS} city), people of here doses not get Oranges in the city. Other Attractions : 1) Asia’s biggest Food & Vegetable market in Nagpur names as Kalamna. 2) Asia’s biggest Timber market named as Lakadganj. 3) Asia’s biggest Govt. Medical college in Nagpur. 4) Most favourable environment for Sonpapdi. 5) Origin pt of Rashtriya Swyamsevek Sangha RSS. 6) It is Centre… Read more »

why u ppl r gettin so much obsessed by ur cities….we all know abt the cities in india….its not dat anyne is of less imporance…its only abt the clean and green cities…not abt having grt hotels,malls or being of a metropolitan status(with a lot of kachda in between) instead if u hav a clean city with lot of greenery it will hav a higher rank than the prev. one….cz its abt green and clean cities,as simple as dat.

i still think it is bangalore ,some trees were cut down to bring development (metro rail,mall,it companies) but still it has greenish atmosphere. the government is taking steps to maintain the greenish of bangalore they are planting lots of trees and the development work is going on in bangalore city maybe after 10 years the entire image of bangalore will change it will become more developed and greenish when these trees grow up.
