Banmalipur village is located in Baxitulsipalli Gram Panchayat of Kalahandi district. The Village residents have received Community Forest Rights over 268 acres of land. But, forest department set-up plantation on the CFR land without even consulting the Gram Sabha. Not only that the department fenced the entire area, blocking the access of the community into the forest. This is affecting the livelihood of about 150 families, which depend on the forest to collect minor forest produce. This blatant violation of Forest Rights Act has aggrieved the village residents.
