Presently, TNPL needs annually around 0.5 million tones of pulpwood to meet 35% of total raw material. In order to become self-reliant in pulp wood need, TNPL created "Plantation Department" during 2003-04. As per National Forest Policy 1988 guidelines, Tamil Nadu Newsprint and Papers Limited (TNPL), Kagithapuram has introduced two contract farming models namely Farm forestry and Captive Plantation during 2004-05 to augment the pulp wood raw material. This will create sustainability in meeting the raw material demands by establishing plantation in non forest area with a people centered participatory approach which will be economically viable, socially acceptable and environmentally compatible. TNPL is expanding its mill in Unit-II, Mondipatti by establishing new hardwood pulp mill by which, the annual requirement will be increased to 1.2 million tones from the year 2021-22. In order to be self-sustainable, TNPL Plantation having plantation target of 25,000 acres per year from 2018-19.
