In Dainiguda village under Budhidhara Gram Panchayat, Kalahandi district, Odisha, only one household has managed to receive Individual Forest Right under the Forest Rights Act out of the 25 households in the village, which applied for the titles. The community has claimed Community Rights/Community Forest Rights under the same act but the claim is pending. The Forest Department has already planted species like teak, acacia, karanja and eucalyptus under CAMPA funds on the lands that have been claimed as well as can be claimed under Individual Forest Rights and Community Forest Rights. The right holders of the land are being restricted by the department, which is increasing the struggles of the communities to earn a livelihood.
