The Project aims to increase the income of tea smallholders and private estates on a sustainable basis and to improve the environment at the same time. To fulfill the objectives, the Project will (i) undertake institutional reforms to improve the effectiveness of tea-related institutions and rationalize the cess rebate to benefit the smaller holdings; (ii) provide credit financing for replanting and infilling on smallholdings and private estates, establishment of nurseries, rehabilitation of tea factories, and handling of green leaf; and (iii) improve social infrastructure such as workers' housing and rural feeder roads as well as afforestation. The Project is expected to replant 9,600 ha and infill 35,800 ha of tea; establish 455 tea nurseries; rehabilitate 85 tea factories; improve 5,000 workers' housing and sanitation facilities; improve 250 km of feeder roads; and afforest 1,000 ha of degraded land.
