Haritha Keralam Mission

A comprehensive project is being implemented to clear and remove waste from all the water bodies in Kerala; ponds, rivers, lakes and streams. Disposal of solid waste, removal of waste water and measures to increase the area of land under cultivation will be undertaken under this project. Land cleaned up through this project will be used for vegetable cultivation, so as to achieve self sufficiency in agriculture. This will be a peoples’ participatory program on the lines of literacy mission, democratic decentralization and peoples’ planning.
