  • The ABG scheme was implemented through the Botanical Survey of India (BSI).

Despite releasing a fund of Rs 73.35 lakh, Due to the ineffective monitoring and delay in the release of financial assistance by the MoEF&CC, no environmental benefits were achieved from a demonstration project.

Due to non-multiplication of targeted plant species, the species could not be distributed to other organisations for re-introduction.
ii.The gardens also failed to develop propagation techniques, which also affected the conservation efforts.
Additional info: 
MoEF&CC approved a lab-cum-demonstration project titled “Sequential production of Bio-Diesel, Bio-Ethanol, Bio-Hydrogen and Methane from leather solid wastes and effluent treatment sludges” to Central Leather Research Institute(CLRI), Chennai, Tamil Nadu at a total project cost of Rs 77.11 lakh.

  • The project was approved in Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode

Objective: To demonstrate the treatment of leather waste in an environmentally sustainable manner.

  • The project envisaged delivery of environmental benefits like effective solid waste management techniques for tanneries, better pollution abatement techniques, avoidance of groundwater contamination and efficient greenhouse emission control techniques.

Only 1 unit of a bio-diesel recovery had been established in March 2018 against the expected physical outputs of four distinct fuel recovery units.
