Plantation Agriculture – RISPC, Tea Act, etc.

The Centre is planning to liberalise the Tea Act

To increase tea production and productivity by bringing additional areas under cultivation.

  1. It helps to waive the present stipulation of obtaining permits for bringing additional areas under tea cultivation
  2. Tea production has to grow vertically (through productivity increases) and horizontally (through land expansion).
  3. C-DAC (Centre for Developing Advanced Computing) is presently working on a spectrometer which will enable tea growers especially small ones to detect traces of pesticides early.
