Bamboo has been used for eons for many applications, from a food source to a building material. But with the age of modern materials, many people don’t understand the scope of uses for bamboo. The shoots can be picked early for eating, and the wood of older canes can be treated and used as anything from decoration to instruments. Thankfully, many manufacturers have seen all the products that can be made from this highly renewable resource and have begun to utilize bamboo in some fascinating ways.

Keeping in view the importance of bamboo, the Centre had in 2017 amended the Indian Forest Act 1927 to remove bamboo from the category of trees, making it possible for anyone to undertake its cultivation and do business in bamboo and its products without any felling and transit permissions outside forests.

Import policy has also been changed so to promoting use of the bamboo industry in the country. This will help increase income of farmers and at the same time reduce dependency on imports,” said Union agriculture minister Narendra Singh Tomar while virtually inaugurating the clusters. These clusters will be engaged in raising nurseries and plantations, and development of bamboo products such as furniture, agarbatti, Venetian blinds, chopsticks, toothbrush, lifestyle products, jewellery, bottles, yoga mat and charcoal.

Tomar on the occasion also released a logo for the National Bamboo Mission

 (NBM) which was selected through a contest on MyGov platform. The winner, Sai Ram Goudi Edigi of Telengana

, was selected from 2,033 entries received from across the country.

The Mission’s goal is to connect bamboo farmers with markets to increase supply of appropriate raw material to domestic industry.

The bamboo is cultivated in 23 states, including all the eight in the North-East. Ten most important species which are required by industry have been identified under NBM. The Mission also works to make available quality planting material to farmers for plantations.
