Industries secretary holds review of Bamboo Mission

Ranchi: Industries Secretary K Ravikumar held a review meeting over the promotion of bamboo mission and renewal energy in which he said that in the days to come on barren and nonusable land bamboo would be planted which would lead to prosperity of the farmers. During the meeting, he called on the farmers to cultivate bamboo on barren land and said that bamboo of not so good quality can be given to cement industries for renewable energy cultivation. He said that bamboo would also be purchased by Dalmia cement at Rs 2500 per tonne. He said that farmers can sell their bamboo every three years.

The official said that members of Small Cottage Industries Board and Krishi Mitras would inform the farmers in this regard. In the meeting, he asked the representatives of the Dalmia Cement to set up a nursery of bamboo in Palamu Chatra Gumla Simdega East and West Singbhum Latehar and Garhwa district. He also asked them to inform the farmers about the benefits of bamboo cultivation and said that the state government would also try to provide them with some forest land as instructions in this regard have been given to the land and revenue department.

He said that the forest and environment department has been also directed to concentrate on bamboo cultivation under the national bamboo mission. Dalmia Cement wants to purchase bamboo from Jharkhand for its cement plant in Rajnandgaon and in Bihar for which it would encourage cultivation of bamboo in many districts of Jharkhand so that it can make a name in carbon neutrality.
