Infosys Limited is in the process of expanding its Pune campus by nearly 4,000 seats to 35,000.
The company had sought necessary environment clearances from the Ministry of Environment earlier, which was granted by an expert appraisal committee (EAC) of the ministry last month.
The expansion shall cost the company an amount of Rs 690 crore.
“A minimum of one tree for every 80 sqm of land should be planted and maintained that the existing trees will be counted for this purpose” the EAC asked the company while granting the clearance.
The EAC also put up a condition that Rs 3.45 crore has to be earmarked under Corporate Environment Responsibility (CER) by the IT firm, for the activities such as Skill and Economic Development activities, Education facilities, Health and Medical facilities, Drainage and sanitation facilities.
