Speaking on the occasion, Paul said that many new initiatives have been taken in Rashtrapati Bhavan in the field of horticulture in the last five years including plantation of new trees and introduction of rare varieties of flowers such as Tulips. The honey produced in Rashtrapati Bhavan will be of a unique quality in view of the rich flora in the area. After training, the Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) will install 500 bee boxes in different phases in the Rashtrapati Bhavan (official residence of the President of India) premises. Besides, the apiary is expected to boost the flora and fauna in and around the President’s Estate and increase the crop yield by at least 25 per cent.

The programme has been launched by KVIC following the call of ‘Sweet Revolution’ given by the Government of India.
