Herbal State

In view of extremely rich bio-cultural diversity in the state and dependence of forest dwellers for their health requirements on medicinal plants the Government has declared Chhattisgarh as an ‘HERBAL STATE’ in July 2001.

Accordingly the Chhattisgarh Forest Policy has specially provided for evolving a feasible mechanism for in situ / ex situ conservation, domestication, propagation and non-destructive harvest of medicinal plants with the active help and support from local people including traditional healers and vaidyas.
