The purpose of the Sabujshree Scheme:

The Sabujshree Scheme is a tree planting Scheme with each newborn child. The purpose of this Scheme is basically one direct and the other indirect purpose.

Direct Objective:

The direct objective of the Sabujshree Scheme is to ensure the financial security of every child in West Bengal as soon as it is born. Under this Scheme, the parents of the newborn have given a sapling to plant on their house.  The tree is given completely free. The parents of the newborn carefully grow the tree with their child.

The tree grows with the growth of the child. And the market value of the tree that is planted is good. As a result, if the child falls into any financial crisis when he grows up, he can collect money from cutting down the tree.

This means that the money received from him on the tree and its wood can be spent on the future needs of the child. And this is the direct purpose of the Sabujshree Scheme.

Indirect purpose:

Now let’s not know what is the indirect or innards objectives of the Sabujshree Scheme. The indirect scene is not intoxicated with direct purpose but its scope is much deeper.

One of the major objectives of this Scheme is to maintain the balance of nature. In fact, we all now know that the world is constantly warming up. Sea levels are rising due to increasing industrialization and the greenhouse effect.

Due to the rapid decline of forests by cutting down trees and the increase in the number of people, the amount of carbon dioxide is increasing. If this continues, the earth will soon become uninhabitable.

Sobujshree, the Scheme of planting one tree with every birth of people/human will help maintain the balance of the earth. It will also make the nature of the state of West Bengal more beautiful from a limited point of view. And maintain the balance of settlements and forests.

Who will benefit from this Scheme?

Like the purpose of the Sabujshree Scheme, its benefits can be explained from two different perspectives.

First of all, all the newborns in the state will directly benefit from the sobujShree Scheme. Under this Scheme, the state government will give a valuable tree sapling to each parent as soon as each child is born.

This tree will grow with the child with utmost care and will meet the financial needs of the child in the near future. Therefore, it can be said that every newborn child in the state will benefit from the Sabujshree Scheme.

Secondly, every person in the state will indirectly benefit from this Scheme, because the tree that grows with that child will enrich the landscape of West Bengal. The tree will affect the climate of West Bengal.

It will control climate change and release oxygen by absorbing carbon dioxide from the air. As a result, the entire people of West Bengal will benefit. They will get more oxygen than before, which will indirectly control their good health.
