Abstract

Tamilnadu Afforestation Project (TAP) is a project which ensures people’s participation in
improving the forest cover and bio-diversity. It is very important to find out the constraints pertaining
to Tamilnadu Afforestation Project (TAP) and overcome these constraints which would otherwise
counteract and collapse the very objectives of the project. This study was conducted in Krishnagiri
taluk of Dharmapuri District of Tamilnadu state. The respondents were selected by using proportionate
random sampling technique in and around the Krishnagiri taluk. The major constraints felt by the
respondents were water scarcity to nurse the young saplings, lack of contact with higher officials,
lack of agricultural and allied enterprises and lack of marketing facilities. The suggestions offered by
the respondents to overcome these were more training to respondents in agricultural allied field,
follow-up visit by forest personnel, increasing marketing facilities, strengthening of village forest
councils and setting up of by product industries in the villages.
