The aura of GPS is spreading with new initiatives. The green crusader of GPS Mr. Harmandeep Singh Anand, MD is not looking back since he thought of going totally green in his all upcoming events or even the previous one held in Hyderabad during the Telangana Tourism Enclave. I was a witness to that wonderful event when he announced with a particular ‘hand gesture’ propagating for being totally paperless.
Everyone is impressed with the idea of GPS, thinking green and implementing the same with a practical and pragmatic way. The Voice of Chandigarh during interactions with the GPS team found that the green concept has started running in their veins. The day is not far away when there will be no advertisement boards, standees or for that matter any plastic material on display in the events in the times to come.
