Talking about the release of funds, Javadekar said:

“The fund being transferred would be in addition to State Budget. The State budget for forests shall remain unaffected. Also, it is expected that all State Governments will utilize this fund for the enhancement of forestry activities to achieve the objectives of the Nationally-Determined Contributions (NDCs). The objective of the NDCs is to increase its forest and tree cover. This will help in an additional carbon sink equivalent to 2.5 to 3 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide by the year 2030.”
