In Sulia village of Kalahandi district of Odisha, residents have obtained Individual forest rights (IFR) titles over 400 hectares under Forest Rights Act 2006. This allows them to earn their livelihood through the forest. But, Odisha Forest Department carried a plantation drivefunded by the CAMPA fundover the land claimed under IFR, blocking the village residents to access the forest, violating FRA. According to the rules, Gram Sabha should be consulted before carrying any activity over the land claimed under FRA. To protest against the move and to take back their only source of livelihood, residents of Sulia are now planning to file a petition against the move along with an application demanding the community rights over their forest.
