Himalayan States including Uttarakhand can be a fountainhead for aromatic start-ups. The geography and climatic conditions in Himalayan states favour the cultivation of medicinal and aromatic plants and these can be developed into Agri-tech enterprises. This is especially relevant given the recent interest in medicinal plants due to the ongoing pandemic.
