BAMBOO MARKETING -DEMAND AND DIFFICULTIES

7th July, 2014: Visit to meeting Mrs. Aruna L, Bamboo House India. Prof: V.V.N.Rao, K. Mallesh (Volunteer) and myself discussed about colloboration with Bamboo house India. At present they have number of contracts for building Bamboo houses for corporate sector and government institutions. Simaltaneously they need Bamboo and Bamboo mats. Now these raw material are importing from Assam spending more money. Where as we in our state has  source of Bamboo species they use. The problem is transportation of even finished product produced from bamboo. In fact as per the proceedings Rc.No: 1339/2014-15 dated 10.01.2014 of Sri.BSS Reddy, Prl.Chief Conservator of Forests (Head of Forest Force) the finished product produced from bamboo, which does not come under definition of forest produce, does not require transit permit under A.P. Forest Produce Transit Rules, 1970. However we decided to make Bamboo mats with Konda Reddys in Chinturu mandal and transport to Hyderabad Bamboo house India as an experiment taking risk on our own. We requested Ms. Aruna garu to market Bamboo handicrafts made by Konda reddys for more income.  She agreed and asked to send images, samples and price list. We visited their workshop of Bamboo House making.
