PITHORAGARH: Uttarakhand’s first tulip garden will come up over 50 hectares of forest land in Pithoragarh district at a cost of Rs 50 crore.

The state government has obtained the Centre’s nod for development of the garden.

To be developed by the ONGC, under its corporate social responsibility program in over 50 hectares of forest land near Chandak hill top, the proposed tulip garden will be the country’s second after the one located in Srinagar (J&K), state finance minister and Pithoragarh MLA Prakash Pant said.

It will be larger than the one in Srinagar, he said.

The site in Mad village near Chandak hilltop has been selected under the state Government’s ’13 districts, 13 new destinations’ scheme, to attract more tourists to the district, Pant said.

“We are fully assured of the support from ONGC, as Union Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has already approved the project, said Pant, who met Pradhan in Delhi last week.

The petroleum minister has given his nod to the program; we hope we will be working on it soon, he said.

Tulip, the flower from Holland, blooms from mid March to May. The flower can be grown in every hill region as well as in plains but the plains cannot produce bulbs of the flower,” said I A Khan, a retired director of horticulture and food processing.

According to the project officer of the scheme the land available for the project in Chandak hill top is ideal for the growth of the flower as it is situated at a height of 1,950 meters from the sea surface and remains sunny and cold throughout the year.

After the final shape of the project gets nod from the Union petroleum ministry we will import tulip bulbs from Holland to be planted here said Vinay Bhargava, Pithoragarh DFO and project officer.

According to the project officer, the possibility of tulip growth in Chandak hill top is brighter than that in Srinagar as the height and climate conditions are more suitable in Chandak hill top. PTI
