All India Coordinated Research Project (AICRP-2)
Expansion of production and production scale technology for sustainable Rural Enterprise in Sal (Shorea robhusta), Jara (Ricinus Commuoinis) and other NEOs in Paschim Medinipur, West Bengal
Financial Assistance:
Science For Equity Empowerment and Development Division, Department of Science & Technology, Govt. of India.


Coordinating Agency:


Centre for Technology Development (CTD), New Delhi


Project Area:


Nayagram Block, West Medinipur District, West Bengal


Project Status:


Project commencement: April 2010, Project Completion: March 2012.
Grant sanctioned: Rs.10,00,000.00. Project is ongoing.

  • Develop a Business Model for viable Rural NEO enterprises by scaling-up production and marketing of identified NEOs viz. Sal (Shorea Robusta), ar4a (Ricinus Comunis), Maha (Basia latifolia), Karanj (Pongamia p9innata) and Kusum (Scheleichera oleosa) upto capacity utilization of 70-80 percent and setting up 2 Satellite Units for Decortications and / or other pre-extraction functions.
  • Conduct adaptive R&D for optimisation of extraction and post-extraction treatment of priority NEOs and standardize all related protocols, and ensure quality as per BIS / other relevant standards.
  • Catalyse relevant and feasible forward /backward linkages and wider dissemination of technology package including cluster development, if feasible, in the area.
  • Train and build capacities of beneficiaries to run and manage the Enterprise.
  • Prepare full technical documentation covering all protocols and other aspects for Sal (Shorea robusta) along with other technical documentation.
