Implementation of the Forest Rights Act

Undoing Historical Injustices

This article looks into the implementation of the Forest Rights Act based on a critical review of literature. Besides examining the process of implementation of the Act, it also attempts an overview of the issues involved and the challenges ahead.

This article is part of a larger research study, “Critical Assessment of the Forest Rights Act, 2006 and Its Impact on Livelihoods of the Forest Dependent Communities: A Comparative Study of Chhattisgarh and Gujarat”, being carried out at the Gujarat Institute of Development Research, Ahmedabad. The study is sponsored by the Research Unit for Livelihoods and Natural Resources (supported by the Jamsetji Tata Trust, Mumbai) at the Centre for Economic and Social Studies, Hyderabad. I acknowledge RULNR for this support. I also wish to thank Rohit Desai, Kailash Sarap and P K Viswanathan for their valuable comments on an earlier draft.
