green (environment friendly) buildings - identified on the basis of use of
water\energy conservation methods, recycled materials, solar power, natural
lighting and energy self-sufficiency - across the country will get special logo

factoring in the existing norms to issue such logo which will be developed by
inviting designs from general public and experts. "The ministry is
contemplating on crowd-sourcing the design after internal discussion and
deliberations with all stakeholders," said an official.
