The award function was presided over by B. Venkatesham, Secretary – Tourism Department attended by K.V. Ramana Chary Advisor to Govt, P. Ramulu – Chairman, TS TDC, Christina, Managing Director TS TDC and other senior officials.  On the occasion a Coffee table book on ‘Ancient temples of Telangana’ and another on ‘Protected monuments of Telangana’ was released.  Also inaugurated a Mobile application on Tourism, Website of Department of Archaeology & Museum, Touch screen Kiosk, Short film on Archaeological and historical sites of Telangana.

Pragati Resorts and the knowledge park has been in the news in the recent past for having created a zero pollution environment free from mosquitoes, bad bacteria, viruses through the 780 varieties of sacred herbal heritage medicinal plantation that remove toxins and refresh an individual through aroma therapy.  The contribution of Pragati for conservation of Biodiversity has been acknowledged by the UN Biodiversity convention in the presence of 600 city mayors of the world during the COP-11 event held in October, 2012.  The 2.5 million plantation in the area with innovative techniques of gardening including Organic farming besides augmenting the water resources with water harvesting, drip irrigation, water sprinklers has reduced the temperature levels here by 6 – 7 degrees as compared to city levels. The Biodiversity inventory survey conducted in 2011 by WWF certified the existence of 181 species and 74 families in the area.

Chief Minister KCR has been referring to Pragati as a role model for creation of mosquito free zone in his recent public addresses and directing the concerned officials to visit Pragati along with the representatives of welfare associations and other local bodies to acquaint themselves with the healthy practices of plantation so that the technology could be replicated across the state.

CM, KCR while launching the ‪GramaJyothi‬ commended Pragati Resorts for having developed a ‪‎mosquito‬ ‪‎free‬ area.

Chief minister of Telangana, K Chandrashekhar Rao while launching the Grama Jyothi (village development) Programme at Gangadevipalli village of Geesukonda Mandal in Warangal District commended PRAGATI Resort near Chilkur Balaji temple on the outskirts of Hyderabad for having developed a mosquitoe free area by planting mosquito repellent plants.

“I request the District Collector (Warangal) to arrange a trip for the people of this village to Pragati Resorts. I am suggesting you to visit that place since Pragati Resorts spread over 3,000 acres close to Hyderabad, is uniquely free from mosquitoes. You cannot even find one mosquito there. I have been trying to make a visit to Pragati but haven’t been able to do so. I have to find some time to visit. You cannot even find one mosquito there. “

(On the lighter vein he said that “your place should be free from mosquitoes… otherwise they will bite you and won’t spare even your Sarpanch, MPTC and MLA. They won’t even leave me even if I say I am the chief Minister. In this way mosquito is a great socialist and maintains impartiality”.)

“Pragati does not use any chemicals. They have achieved this feat by planting certain medicinal and herbal plants. I practically checked it in my Farm house whether this is possible where too Pragati Group has undertaken such type of plantation. Now it is proved… after medicinal plantation done by Pragati my premises is now completely free from mosquitoes. So you also make your village a mosquito free place. You could obtain the required plants from Pragati. I will also request the Management of Pragati to give you some plants. They will come and do the required plantation here so that your village could become a mosquito free place.”

India’s ancient Herbs solution to dreaded diseases

“Welcoming Pragati’s initiative, I take this opportunity to appeal to them to take up herbal plantation near garbage dumping yards, slums and urban pockets like Punjagutta and Kukatpally where emission levels are high,” says G Kalyan Chakravarthy, IAS, Director General, Environment Protection Training & Research Institute on World Forest Day

Hyderabd, 21st March, 2015: World Forest Day was observed at Pragati Resort in Pragati Bio-diversity Knowledge Park near Chilkur Balaji temple. In line with CM K Chandrashekahar Rao’s “Telangana Ku Haritha Haram”, Pragati Foundation and Pragati Bio-diversity Knowledge Park has recently announced the launch of Herbal Urban Forestry programme in association with United Federation of Residents Welfare Associations (U-FERWAS) and Telangana Builders Federation.

G Kalyan Chakravarthy, IAS, Director General, Environment Protection Training & Research Institute, the chief guest on the occasion said, “the noise, air, water pollution have become a serious health hazard. One degree change of temperature has a multiple chain affect on the glaciers resulting in global warming. Our major concern is to bring in the pollution parameters within permissible limit. While welcoming Pragati’s initiative, I take this opportunity to appeal to them to take up herbal plantation near garbage dumping yards, slums and urban pockets like Punjagutta and Kukatpally where emission levels are high.”

He further added, “Any government’s initiative will have greater success with active participation of the public. And such private- public initiative as initiated by Pragati can help move towards our objective.At EPTRI we study climate change in Telangana and AP and work towards providing the right environment. We are in the process of submitting the action report for climate change concerns to government.”

Dr GBK Rao, CMD, Pragati Group talking about the Herbal Urban Forestry programme said, “We are looking at closely working with the state government, private and public bodies to share our expertise on an ongoing basis in the area of sacred herbal plantation to provide disease free lung space to the citizens of Hyderabad at various road meridians, road avenues, parks, junctions and urban pockets. Water conservation through development of rain water harvesting pits and usage of drip irrigation will also be facilitated and people sensitised and educated about the need to conserve water through such initiatives.”

Dr GBK Rao further said, “Pragati has been providing training to various government and private agencies since last ten years in natural farming and herbal plantation. And has now stepped up their efforts to provide necessary training and information to the office bearers of various resident welfare associations, NGOs, social organisations, officials and staff of the government department in herbal green technology to promote the Herbal Urban forestry programme.”

Dubba and other herbal plants were planted on the occasion. This year the theme of World Forest Day has been ‘Climate change – A smart Future.’ 32 million acres of forest is getting destroyed in the world every year. Each herbal plant has medicinal value. Some are researched and others are yet to be worked on. Wonders can be achieved by exploring the medicinal value of the ancient sacred herbal plants to come out with formulations that could relieve mankind from dreaded ailments. A unique herb with medicinal properties for prevention of Breast Cancer and named it as Urginea Raogibikei is one such recent breakthrough of Pragati Bio Pharma .

World Environment Day and Telangana Formation Day Celebrated at Pragati


Hyderabad, 05th June, 2015:

Yadadri temple development authority to collaborate with Pragati Group for sharing its sacred herbal heritage plantation and right plant at the right place. Kishan Rao, chairman of the Yadadri temple development authority shared this while addressing a gathering at Pragati Biodiversity Knowledge Park as a part of the Telangana Formation Day and World Environment Day celebrations. Plans are afoot to beautify the 8.5 kms sacred parikrama pathway around the Yadadri temple with sacred herbal heritage plantation as per the ethos of Indian culture.

B.V Papa Rao, advisor to Govt. of Telangana called for integrating the Telangana Formation and World Environment Day Celebrations, since every year it is going to coincide with each other. Our government is moving ahead on the path of development by adopting a holistic approach to integrate development with environment conservation. State government is going to launch it’s Industrial policy on 12th June followed by massive green drive in July under the Haritha Haram programme in 5000 villages, talukas and municipal bodies.”

Chief Guest P Ramulu, Chairman – TS Tourism Development Corporation speaking on the occasion said, “When the sultans ruled the Golcondas Hyderabad and Telangana were known for it’s natural beauty, plants, migratory birds coming here from various parts of the world. Although human evolution started 5000 years ago most of the damage to the environment has happened in the last hundred years. Deteriorating human values, psychology and craving for material desires has degraded the environment severely.”

Addressing the media Dr GBK Rao, Chairman and Managing Director Pragati Group said, “Right plantation at the right place is the only answer. Sacred herbal plantation at various avenues and urban pockets to provide a pollution free, mosquito free, disease free, virus free, bad bacteria free life to the citizens of Hyderabad and even reduce the temperature levels in the HMDA region is the need of the hour to give the much needed respite to the citizens. Pragati has acquired the expertise over a period of two decades in achieving this remarkable fete at its 2500 acres Pragati Biodiversity Knowledge Park near Chilkur Balaji temple at Proddutur village under Shanakarpally Manadal. And we take this opportunity to launch our Herbal Urban Forestry Programme.”


A spectacular dance performance by Dr. Srutha Keerthi and troop, performance by G V N Raju, Mimicry and Ventriloquist artist and the traditional Telangana cuisine that was served for lunch were the other attractions at Pragati Biodiversity Knowledge Park on the occasion of Telangana Formation Day and World Environment Day Celebrations. All the guest on the dias applauded the commendable work done by Dr GBK Rao, CMD, Pragati Group for conservation of environment.

Time and again ever since Shri K Chandrashekhar Rao took over as CM of Telangana he has acknowledged the intent of the state govt to work together with Pragati to replicate the model across the region. He has already sent his forest officials to Pragati Biodiversity Knowledge Park for a field study to study the herbal green technology there, while CM‘s visit is much awaited. Time and again he has commended the work done by Pragati at its park and has expressed his desire to replicate the Pragati model by all other resident welfare associations and other private and public bodies in Telangana to lead a disease free life.

Urgent, important, will do, such words for taking up plantations is gone. The impact of the rapid destruction of the green cover and concretisation of the cities in the name of urban development is disastrous. We are sitting over a dormant nuclear bomb ready to explode anytime. Time is ticking by fast. If steps are not taken on a war footing to avert this catastrophe, the moment is not far away when our cities, state, nation and our mother earth will soon be engulfed in calamities like Tsunami and Hudhud, people groaning in pain as a result of the impact created by global warming, Ozone puncture and deforestation.
