Mapping of unorganised Assam tea sector

Assam government has decided to do the mapping of the tea produced in the unorganised sector in Assam. To kick start the mapping process, the state government has initiated baseline survey of the small tea growers in the state through the general manager, District Industries and Commerce Centre of Industries and commerce department besides the district administration. The state government is looking to adopt the Kenyan practice where small tea growers and bought leaf factories (BLF) are organised. The survey is slated to be competed in another three months time. The government has decided to give permanent land possession certificates to small tea growers who have plantations in government land and are not encroaching forest land area. Assam produces 480 to 490 million kg of tea, which is 51 percent of the all-India production.
