The Uttarakhand Parivartan Party (UKPP) – directly translated in English as the “Uttarakhand Transformation Party”, is the first Green party in India and is registered in the state of Uttarakhand.
UKPP was formed on January 18, 2009 after two years of grassroots deliberations. The party fielded two candidates in the 2009 parliamentary elections and 15 candidates in the 2012 state assembly elections. UKPP is raising awareness about Green politics among the masses, although yet to win representation in government.
The UKPP has an elected body of office bearers headed by its President, Mr. PC Tewari. The main administrative function is the Secretary-General, served by Mr. Prabhat Dhyani.
