IFS officer powers his kitchen via biogas, gives fertiliser by-product to forest dept

Preaching is easy, we come across a lot of people who do that on a daily basis, but practising the same is something that very few actually do.

Kshitij Kumar, an IFS officer, deployed in Sagar, Madhya Pradesh, is one who comes in the latter category.

At the government bungalow where he lives with his family, the kitchen needs are not met through LPG cylinders like most of the households across the country. Instead, the fuel is generated by an integrated ‘biodigester’, which has also been providing organic fertilisers, and pesticides to nurture the floral and kitchen gardens in his compound for the last two years.
