Abstract:

Jharkhand is a land of biodiversified forest having forest cover area of 33.81%.In the Indian constitution, Forest is the subject of “concurrent list”. The State government of Jharkhand has launched an ambitious welfare plantation scheme known as “JanVanYojana” since the year 2016. The objective of the scheme is to increase the green cover, maintain the environmental balance, conservation of the underground water, to reduce the pressure on notified forest, to increase the farmer’s income as well as to increase forest cover in the state by people’s participation. Under this scheme, there is a provision of planting timber plants with spacing of 3 m x 3 m plant to plant and 2 m x 2 m on the ridge and fruit crop plant species at a distance of 5 m x 5 m in block plantation. The current study was carried out to investigate action plan taken and suggestions for better implementation of the scheme. Primary data from plantation sites of the beneficiaries’ of Ranchi districts and secondary data were collected from Department of Forest, Environment and Climate change, Government of Jharkhand. The data of the beneficiaries’ shows that the scheme has not been implemented properly as least applicants have been approved as well as there has been a steady decline in the number of beneficiaries during the years of plan implementation. The reasons behind the inappropriate implementation are lack of knowledge among beneficiaries about economic values of the fruit and timber yielding crops and their participation on adoption of the scheme, lack of skills or training and irrigation system, lack of awareness regarding the yojana, lack of canvassing and publicity of the scheme among beneficiaries as well as less funding approved for the scheme implementation and untimely distribution of planting material. Therefore, in addition to implementation, it is very necessary to follow up the reports of the scheme and develop an action plan to implement the audit findings.
