Website GSFDC


Gujarat State Forest Development Corporation Limited (GSFDC) was established in August 1976 and registered under the Companies Act of 1956. In 1979, the trade of Minor Forest Produce (MFP) was nationalized in Gujarat, and GSFDC was given the responsibility of managing it. This decision aimed to implement the state’s policy of safeguarding the economic interests of Scheduled Tribes (STs), Scheduled Castes (SCs), and other economically disadvantaged sections of the society while justifying its corporate status.

It’s important to note that GSFDC does not receive any grants or budgetary support from the government. Instead, the corporation operates independently to fulfill its mission and responsibilities in the management of Minor Forest Produce, contributing to the welfare and economic empowerment of marginalized communities in Gujarat.
