The ‘Reviving the Green Revolution’ initiative was operationalised by the Sir Ratan Tata Trust and Navajbai Ratan Tata Trust in April 2002, to promote diversification in agriculture to make it sustainable and economically profitable, especially to small and marginal farmers. The overall success within the initiative, coupled with a major expansion and coverage under the projects, encouraged the Trust to upscale the level of funding individual projects to a centralized organization with a dedicated team through operationalizing the “Reviving Green Revolution (RGR) Cell”. The Cell, established in 2008, is a registered body having FCRA Status and housed in Punjab Agricultural University with a formal institutional structure. It is responsible for prioritization of thrust areas of funding for the Trusts', besides monitoring progress of ongoing projects. Moreover, the Cell also functions as an idea incubator and has a Regional Center located in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu.
The RGR Cell is present in two Indian States i.e. Punjab and Tamil Nadu. We are implementing a number of projects focussing on agricultural development and building rural livelihoods. We are currently partnering with the Government, Agricultural Universities and donor agencies such as Tata Trusts and WWF to implement projects in both States. The RGR Cell is interested in further scaling up work in both States and would like to invite the participation of like-minded Knowledge Institutions, Donor Agencies, Non-Profit Organisations, CSR Initiatives etc. to join in on our effort.
