"We have seen that our ancestors used to meticulously plan the location of settlements taking into consideration the proper drainage system and also ensuring that the green cover remains intact.

He also directed to empanel the geologist experts, landscape engineers and environmental planners to assist in planning aspects. Apart from this, the Baddi-Barotiwala-Nalagarh Development Authority (BBNDA) should be tied with the TCP department for which the department, in consultation with BBNDA, should take up the matter for consideration with the Government.
