Non Timber Forest Produces (NTFP)

 

Top priority is attached to NTFP operation as they provide seasonal employment to tribal people living in close proximity to forests. The operation is confined to Bankura, Purulia and West Medinipur only and relates to Kendu leaf and Sal seeds collection. While the Kendu leaves collection including pruning provides employment to the tribal people most of whom are women, for a period of 90 days (pruning- January & February, collection of kendu leaves- Mid-April to May), Sal seeds collection gives employment for 30 days from middle of May to end of June. On an average a collector (Kendu leaves as well as Sal seeds) earns an amount of Rs.98/- per day.
