State Governments implement CSS with maximum share of funding by the Central Government with a defined State Government share. There are very limited numbers of important schemes that are matters of national policy, such as family planning, resettlement of landless agriculture laborers, etc. Such schemes are included under CSS.
Activities under Green India Mission will be implemented under convergence with Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA), Compensatory Afforestation Fund Management and Planning Authority (CAMPA) and the National Afforestation Programme (NAP). Government has envisaged the total of Rs. 13,000 crores in 12th Five Year Plan (2012–2017) for the implementation of various activities under the mission. The sharing pattern for the plan outlay for centre and state would be 90:10 for the North Eastern States and 75: 25 for the rest of the States respectively.
