The ‘Ghar Ghar Aushadhi’ scheme will provide eight medicinal plants such as Tulsi, Giloy, Kalmegh and Ashwagandha at no cost three times in five years to all 1.26 crore families of Rajasthan. The IIL Foundation will provide planters so that the saplings are safely delivered to the beneficiaries and thrive.
“IIL Foundation is happy about the noble initiative of the government of Rajasthan. This will help to ensure that the saplings are not neglected due to lack of care and time taken for planting them. We are humbled to be part of this great initiative by Rajasthan Government. It feels good to be part of such initiatives and serve society especially in Rajasthan where we started in 2002, with our first manufacturing unit in Chopanki, Bhiwadi.”, says Mr. Rajesh Aggarwal, Managing Director, Insecticides (India) Ltd.
“It is encouraging to see the corporates like Insecticides (India) Limited coming forward and really working for the betterment of Society, both working in the same direction can give more to the society and really make a noticeable difference.” said Mr. Apoorva Krishna Srivastava, Deputy Conservator of Forest, Alwar, Rajasthan.
