There are about 34GovtDepts, participating in the Harithaharam. The government has ordered the departments to take responsibility for planting the plant throughout the year, not only in the run-up to planting during the rainy season. The chief secretary has given orders to the growers to take care of them, provide water facilities, geo tagging of planted areas and upload them on the forest department's website so that continuous monitoring can be done.

The Green Brigade was born out of the idea of Chief Minister KCR to appoint a responsible team in each area to ensure that the plants were not only planted but also responsible for their care. The government specifically wants local public representatives and people to take care of planted plants. Green Brigades were set up in all areas and entrusted the duties.
 Similarly, the Telangana government has decided to encourage special grants (Under green budget) from various quotas to the gram panchayats, municipalities and urban governing bodies. The government is campaigning extensively to raise awareness among the public that, the trees will grow and the environment will be protected by planting trees. The government provides incentives to citizens, youth, public associations, government employees and officials for planting.
The main purpose of the Harithaharam project is not just to increase the area of greenery, but also to conserve and restore natural forests and to prevent the encroachments, cutting of trees in large scale in the forested areas. The forests of Telangana have been completely destroyed due to the neglect of the previous governments. Jungle Bachao - Jungle Badao is repeatedly said by CM KCR to bring rejuvenation to the forests of Telangana. As part of this, the Chief Minister is holding regular review meetings on the implementation of the Harithaharam program. From time to time, the officers are advised and necessary instructions were given to them to know the details of the planting program and protective measures. Minister of Forests and Environment Indrakaran Reddy is reviewing the district-wide Harithaharam implementation progress. He is also participating in harithaharam programs and as a part performing district's tours. Monitoring of plant growth and conservation efforts of Haritha haram in different areas is being done, regularly.
