Bamboo cultivation to be encouraged as part of Harita Haram

Vishwas News

Hyderabad, Mar 9:Telangana Forest Department will soon study the bamboo industry in other States to examine the feasibility of introducing similar set ups in the State to encourage growth of bamboo, manufacturing and marketing of bamboo products.
The State Forest Department on Thursday held preliminary discussions with representatives of the Bamboo Society of India on these issues. Forest Department officials will study the bamboo industry models followed in Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Tripura before finalising a plan for the State.
Thursday's meeting follows the recent Central government decision on relaxation of rules on growing and transportation of bamboo in the country. In the wake of this decision, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao instructed the Forest Department to implement a plan to encourage marginal and small farmers to plant bamboo and earn extra income as well as providing raw materials for those involved in manufacture of bamboo based goods.
While wild grown bamboo is available in some districts outside of wildlife reserves and sanctuaries from which bamboo is prohibited, the department decided to encourage farmers to grow the plants as part of the Telanganaku Harita Haram programme.
The meeting on Thursday was attended among others by Bamboo Council of India's governing council vice-chairman RK Mehta, Telangana Principal Chief Conservator of Forests PK Jha, officer on special duty at the CMO Priyanka Varghese, Additional Principal Chief Conservator of Forests RM Dobriyal and other officials.
Mehta briefed the meeting on the Society activities and the potential for income generation through manufacture of bamboo based products such as furniture and everyday items of use.
