Artison estimates that it will require directly and indirectly substatial workforce for plantation. Accordingly, a plantation of this size will create huge employment opportunity for local villagers. Adding also the requirement of unskilled labour for factory, power generation and effluent treatment plant, we envisage this project will directly benefit approximately 15,000– 20,000 people.
PREVENTION OF SOIL ERROSION
It is an established fact that any plantation prevents soil erosion. Bamboo plantation will also help in this regard.
SUSTAINABLE EARNING FOR LOCAL FARMERS
In addition to bamboo from own production, we plan to buy bamboo from the local farmers/producers. As bamboo is not a seasonal crop, it will create a round the year earning potential for the local farmers.
Bamboo Plantation will aid in preventing air-pollution. Furthermore, an opportunity of additional earning potential will create a push towards bamboo plantation thus further contributing to pollution control.
POLLUTION CONTROL TO NARMADA RIVER
Provided the up-stream work is done by local government, we plan to take the grey/black water of Local Township and treat the same for our plantation project. Thus the project may help in reducing pollution to Narmada River.
