It gives me immense pleasure to present the Gujarat State Forest Development Corporation Limited. GSFDCLtd is working for Collection, Trading &Managemnet of MFP's along with the Forest Dwellers since four decades. Initially Timru leaves, Mahuda Flowers and seeds were traded sold and profits paid to GramPanchayats.In the year 2017-18 we have already shared Rs.39.67 crores profit to Timru leaf collectors. Individually 33,000 collectors have been benefitted in 13 districts of Gujarat State. List of trading species can be checked from the website. Now we trade in about 100 plus MFPs.

Currentbuzz of VANIL Udyog

GSFDCLtd has for the first time shortlisted some of the top Architects/Interiors so that premium renovation services can be provided to all Government/Semi Government Agencies. The basic wooden works are carried out at the VanilUdyog, through the trained young tribal youths.      

We continue to maximise MFP collection by our Tribal brothers & sisters, so that enhanced profits can improve their quality of life.

We look forward to announcing the launch of a few new projects linked to the development of The Forest dwellers, in the near future, and are optimistic you will all be as excited as we are when you hear the details like Hon PM backedVan DhanVikas Kendra Projects.

We shall at the same time continue to strive towards exploring Value Addition techniques for the MFPs, reaching the mass market and offer more products and services in different segments and areas and adding positivity in more lives
