There has been an increase of 13 Sq Km in forest area due to the efforts of the government and high survival rates of new plantations, he said. Panchayats, urban local bodies, NGOs, Education and other Institutions, and other such organisations will be helping hand in survival of new plantations.

The schools and 3,000 youth clubs would also be participating in plantation drive across the state on the eve of International Youth Day on August 12.

The maintenance period in plantation areas has been enhanced from three to five years to ensure survival percentage of plants and RCC fencing is being encouraged for preventing deforestation.

A memorandum of understanding was signed for grant of two million euro under this project and the amount would be utilized for training programme of forest officials and development of local communities.

Under the project, Rs 2.40 crore has already been spent, while Rs 40 crore is being spent under afforestation programmes.

    I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

    Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing
    months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods
    to stop hackers?
