Comments from some of the eminent foresters who visited our project sites.

"Plantation raised by KITPLY over degraded Laterite Soil is an example of dedication, innovation and social economic development of the water scarce backward district of M.P. Kudos for the good work done to bring greenery to barren rocky tract."

“A very courageous and pioneering effort of raising plantations in a very refractory waste land. A very innovative approach has been adopted including drip irrigation. It needs some modern inputs especially in the area of seed and plant selection, procuring, etc. to get optimum production as well as environmental impact. A lot of local employment and goodwill has been generated, and it has inspired local landowners to take to tree planting. I wish all success to this nodded effort."

"I would never think of a dry dreary land to be transformed to such a sylvan setting. SPG needs all the credit for this bold step in creating large scale plantation and encouraging local people and industries to have more and more plantations."

"The site is an example of the type of waste land we have in India - extending over 85 million hectares. If even 10 million hectares can be afforested in the manner attended to by KITPLY, it will go a long way towards economic improvement, meeting the needs of industry, production of firewood, improving the hydrology and providing employment. It is good that one enterprise has come forward to create a model. My compliments to Shri Goenka, Shri Sinharoy and his team of dedicated officials."

"Very good effort in greening the waste land through private efforts for everybody's benefit. This effort has provided employment in backward rural areas, besides providing fodder and fuel to local people. Incidentally, it takes care of industrial raw material, it also takes care of ecological restoration of conserving soil and water and has the environmental advantage of acting as a carbon sink. There is scope of improving the productivity through clonal propagation. Overall, it is a great effort and my compliments to all
concerned."
