Sikkim-The First Organic State

Sikkim Organic Mission, the Mission for making Sikkim the first Organic State started in 2003 with the historic declaration by the Chief Minister, Shri Pawan Chamling in the Sikkim Legislative Assembly. Thereafter, a number of notable initiatives were taken by the Government, such as framing Action Plan, discouraging the use of chemical fertilizers, providing manure production infrastructure, capacity building programmes for farmers etc. Finally, by the end of the year 2015, Sikkim was able to convert its cultivation area into totally organic. Sikkim thus became the first Organic State-a declaration made by the Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi on 18th January,2016.The Government of Sikkim has further declared 18th January as Organic Day, which will be celebrated all over the State annually.
