Coir Geo Textiles under MGNREGA

Mahatma Gandhi NREGA focuses more on water conversion and water harvesting activities. Construction of ponds, renovation of public ponds, construction of irrigation of canals etc are taken up under water conversion. The stabilisation of water bodies is important and in this regard, coir geo textiles can be used for side wall stabilisation in all water conservation activities supplemented with vegetative covering. Hence there is ample scope for MGNREGA to be the forward linkage of coir sector.  Please click here to see Photos
