The Balangir District Forestry Forum demanded accelerating the process of awarding community claims over forest as per the Forest Rights Act (FRA), 2006.
A delegation of the forum led by Thabir Charan Meher, Kulmani Sahu and others, today submitted a memorandum to the district collector SN Dey in this regard and urged him to expedite the individual/community claim over the forest.
In Balangir district, a total of 1,753forest rights committees have been formed and a total of 956 individual titles over forest have been distributed. However, so far no single community claim over forest has fulfilled even though 88communityclaims over the forest have been submitted at the Sub Divisional level forest rights committee, pointed out Kulmani Sahu of the forum.
We appraised the district collector of the situation and urged him to expedite the implementation FRA in the district, informed Sahu further.
