Green Army - Maharashtra Government Initiative

Yesterday I read a notice on my college's notice board and decided to know more about this. The title Green Army itself had me curious hence all my findings in this post. I felt this is something that can be shared and more the participation better the results.

For Environmental protection forests are important and they are equally useful to fulfil different needs of human beings. Forest are directly and indirectly connected to daily life of human like as fresh air (oxygen) and forest produced. So that purpose increase of Forest cover, Conservation of forest area , wildlife conservation and protection these three things are important and Forest department set an agenda to work upon. Forest are one of the natural prosperity of human. It can be possible revival the forest cover but requires a best forestry Management practices. Forests are made up of land, trees, animals, small living creatures. These component of the forest work as complement to each other if any one of these component change or reduce it will affect and disturb whole environmental cycle. These components helps and make balance of biodiversity and environment.
  1. To create a social platform to involve the citizenry in activities relating to forest & wildlife (conservation, protection and preservation).
  2. Increase in effective Public participation
So what is Green Army?

Under Article 48A of the Directive Principles of State Policy, The State shall endeavor to protect and improve the environment and safeguard the forests and wild life of the country. In addition, under 51A(g) of the Fundamental Duties of India it shall be the duty of every citizen to protect and improve the natural environment including forests, lakes, rivers and wild life, and to have compassion for living creatures. The State Government of Maharashtra has taken up the 50 crore plantation program intended to increase the forest cover in the state from the current 20% to the nationally mandated 33% of Maharashtra's land area. Insufficient manpower with the Forest Department call for the initiative of Green Army.
