Union Government of India to Fund Rubber Plantation in Maoist Affected States

Sep 26, 2013 10:01 IST

Union Government on 25 September 2013 approved a proposal of funding Rubber Plantation in over 50000 Acres of Land in Maoist-Affected States under a special funded Central project.

The move aims at preventing youth from joining the naxal movement by providing them a sustainable source of income. The proposal was formulated jointly by the Union Ministries of Home and Commerce.

The Union Ministry of Commerce had earlier sought the Home Ministry's help to fund the Rubber Board's project for the cash crop across 50000 hectares of land in five Naxal affected states over a period of 16 year.

A proposal to this effect was approved at a high-level meeting, chaired by Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde in New Delhi. The day-long meeting also reviewed the anti-Naxal operations and development works being undertaken in these states.
