Solution

Tea plants are pruned due to two reasons:
(i) The removal of central stem encourages the quick development of lateral branching and periodical pruning also does not allow the plant to grow more than 40 cm. This facilitates hand plucking which is done mostly by women.
(ii) Pruning also helps in growing new shoots bearing soft leaves in plenty.
