Bilt Tree Tech Limited is part of the US$4bn Avantha Group, led by Founder and Chairman Mr. Gautam Thapar.
BTTL was incorporated in 1989 as a wholly owned subsidiary of Ballarpur Industries Limited (BILT) dedicated to the promotion of technology-based pulpwood plantations. The company helps farmers to improve productivity and net returns from their marginal lands.
BTTL started its operations at Yamuna Nagar in Haryana in collaboration with Plantex Australia Pvt. Ltd. A plant production nursery with a production capacity of five million seedlings per annum was established. The forestry programme started with the production of Eucalyptus seedlings. Root trainer trays were used for the first time in commercial scale in this nursery.
BTTL’s agro forestry programme is currently operating in several districts in the states of Maharashtra, Odisha, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh. So far more than 41,500 hectares of trees have been planted, benefiting more than 32,500 farmers. As part of its agro forestry programme, BTTL supplies fast growing, site-specific improved quality pulpwood plantation stock. The programme is supported with efficient technical support services and improved plantation practices. It also facilitates financial assistance for small and marginal farmers through help in securing bank loans, encouraging them to take up plantation.
BTTL also facilitates market linkage for the wood produced in these plantations with Ballarpur Industries Ltd (BILT). BILT purchases the pulpwood at a pre-decided support price or the market price whichever is higher at the time of harvest.
