10 years later, forest rights elude TN tribals 12.6.2017 DNA: Top News
It's been over 10 years since the Scheduled Tribes and the Traditional Forest Dwellers (Recognition of Forest Rights) Act, 2006 — popularly known as the Forest Rights Act (FRA) — that aims to protect the rights of tribals and other forest dwellers, came into effect. But, for the forest dwellers in Tamil Nadu, the whole measure seems to be only on paper, with the government failing to distribute even a single title deed. The FRA sought to correct the historical injustice done to the traditional forest-dwelling communities by conferring rights to hold and own forest land where they traditionally lived and cultivated. But while states across the country including neighbouring Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Kerala went ahead with the FRA implementation and distributed 17.91 lakh title deeds covering 1.37 crore acres of forest lands till March this year as per the Ministry of Tribal Welfare data, the Tamil Nadu government is still hiding behind excuses. The Madras High Court had on April 30, 2008, passed an ...

It's time to think green... 20.3.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
I start with a question. Has the word 'forest' become more prevalent in our everyday vocabulary, no matter which walk of life we come from? I mean, how often do we see, read or refer to a mention of this term. Let's explore a few possibilities. The word sometimes comes across in news with a statistical enumeration of the tree cover that India has and whether we are falling short of our policy goals. At other times, there is an appeal that trees need to be protected as they give a whole deal of services to human beings. Good air, water, a peek into wildlife, a fine trek and much else our environmental mind would desire. Then, there are occasions when the reference is that of a contest. Should part of the Panna Tiger Reserve in Madhya Pradesh be submerged because India is experimenting with the idea of interlinking of rivers or is the habitat of the black-necked crane more important than India's strategic dam building in Arunachal Pradesh? Mini hydel projects or wind power are the alternatives for many ...
