Satyendra ji, please take care before going for its large scale cultivation. As you know once Musli Mafia was active, now Stevia Mafia is fooling Indian farmers. Please make legal market tie up with the plant suppliers, bargain much for the cost of planting material and give much emphasis of quality planting material. .
Please go through my article published in Down to Earth many years back on Moosli Mafia.

Dear Pankaj ji,
Very unknowingly this is what I did with my nieces today. They are 5 and 10 yrs old. I gave them each a leaf to chew and when they ask for the name I said Meethi Tulsi.
I think that is a right name in Hindi for this plant.
