The project aims to reforesting mass scale plantation/regeneration in mountain villages. To expand the green cover, Van Panchayats (VPs), Common Village Land and Private Lands will be taken up. VPs and Common Village lands will consist of be deforested, degraded and wastelands in VPs and common village land. Whereas private lands will consist of terraces and barren land. The method for increasing the green cover will be the plantation of seedlings raised in nurseries, direct sowing of seed/acorn of selective species, and ANR to have options and models.
