November 2000 under the Chairpersonship of Union Health & Family Welfare Minister. The objectives of establishing a Board is to establish an agency which would be responsible for coordination of all matters relating to medicinal plants, including drawing up policies and strategies for conservation, proper harvesting, cost-effective cultivation, research and development, processing, marketing of raw material in order to protect, sustain and develop this sector, The work would continue to be carried out by the respective Departments, Organisation but the Board would provide a focus and a direction to the activities. FUNCTIONS OF THE BOARD:

Domestic Scenario
Medicinal plants market in the country is today unorganised due to several problems. Medicinal plants are a living resource, exhaustible if overused and sustainable if used with care and wisdom. At present 95 % collection of medicinal plants is from the wild. Current practices of harvesting are unsustainable and many studies have highlighted depletion of resource base. Many studies have confirmed that pharmaceutical companies are also responsible for inefficient , imperfect, informal and opportunistic marketing of medicinal plants. There is a vast, secretive and largely unregulated trade in medicinal plants, mainly from the wild, which continues to grow dramatically in the absence of serious policy attention with environmental planning. Confusion also exists in the identification of plant materials where the origin of a particular drug is assigned to more than one plant, due to which, asulteration is common in such cases. All these affect the market both directly and indirectly. Marketing is a daunting problem, which besets the development of the plant-based industry in developing countries. Marketability of products will be a crucial factor in determining the failure or success of this sector. The market outlets can be for local use and for export. As for local use some products could reach the consumer directly while other have to be either further processed or used as secondary components in other industrial products. A clear understanding of both the supply-side issues and the factors driving the demand and size of the medicinal plants market is a vital step towards planning for both the conservation and sustainable use of the habitats of these plants as well as for ensuring continued availability of the basic ingredients used to address the health needs of the majority of the world’s population. Brief Global Scenario
According to the report of the world Health Organisation (WHO) a large population of the world relies on the traditional systems of medicines, largely plant based to meet their primary health care needs. India at present (2000) exports herbal materials and medicines to the tune of Rs.446 crores only while it has been estimated that this can be raised to Rs.3000crores by 2005. The Chinese export based on plants including raw drugs, therapeutics and other is estimated to be around Rs.18000-Rs.22000 crores. In view of the innate Indian strengths which interalia include diverse eco-systems, technical and farming capacity and a strong manufacturing sector, the medicinal plants area can become a huge export opportunity A part from requirement of medicinal plants for internal consumptions, India exports crude drugs mainly to developed countries viz.USA, Germany, France, Switzerland, UK and Japan, who share between them 75 to so percent of the total export of crude drugs from India. The principal herbal drugs that have been finding a good market in foreign coutnries are Aconite, Aloe, Belladona, Acorus, Cinchona, Cassia tora , Dioscorea, Digitalis, Ephedra, PROMOTIONAL AND COMMERCILA SCHEMES
Project proposals could be submitted in the following designated areas of PROMOTIONAL /COMMERCIAL schemes for overall development of medicinal plants in
