The program was launched by Telangana Chief Minister Kalvakuntla Chandrashekar Rao on 3 July 2015. It is one of the Telangana Flagship programs to rejuvenate degraded forests, protecting these forests from threats such as smuggling, encroachment, fire, and grazing. It adopted intensive soil and moisture conservation measures based on a watershed approach.
In the areas outside the existing forest, massive planting activities were to be taken up in areas such as; road-side avenues, river and canal banks, barren hills and foreshore areas, institutional premises, religious places, housing colonies, community lands, municipalities, and industrial parks.
Specific duties and responsibilities are assigned to different committees to ensure the implementation of the program in a well-designed way. These committees do regular field inspections and monitor the ongoing plantation and nursery works. The committees are the State Level Steering Committee and the District Level Monitoring and Co-ordination Committee.
At the village level, Haritha Rakshana Committees were formed to monitor the program under the Chairmanship of Gram Sarpanch.
The seedlings are monitored through geo-tagging. The Forest Department posts survival percentage details on the Department.
