About Re-Hab Project:

  • It is an initiative under Khadi & Village Industries Commission (KVIC).
  • It is running this project in 7 states of the country, namely in Karnataka, Maharashtra, West Bengal, Assam and Orissa.
  • Under this project fencing of bee boxes is installed in such areas from where elephants move towards the human settlements and farmers' agriculture.
  • Fencing of Bee-boxes on the routes of movement of elephants blocks the path of wild elephants.
  • In this way, through honey-bees, elephants can be prevented from attacking humans and destroying farmers' crops.

National Honey Mission:

  • Project RE-HAB is a sub-mission of KVIC’s National Honey Mission.
  • The Honey Mission is a programme to increase the bee population, honey production and beekeepers’ income by setting up apiaries.
