Dr Suborno Bose, Chairman, IIHM said, "It's a step forward by IIHM towards sustainability."
"Hydroponic farms are common in many western countries because it goes against conventional farming and it uses lesser water than normal farming and is ideal for places where there is dearth of water. This is a small step towards embracing sustainability in our lives. Sustainability is no longer a lip service or political slogan but a reality that people in India and around the world must realise. Sustainability is the only key to survival. IIHM's Delhi's Hydroponic farm is just the first step towards a larger goal of starting such farms across all IIHM campuses in India and overseas,"
