In Chaya village of Kunda block in Chatra district of Jharkhand, 200 ha. of CFR contested land has been set aside by the Forest Department for plantations. The Gram Sabha's consent was not sought, but public hearings were held before the plantation drive was started by the Forest Department. Some natural vegetation of the area has been destroyed. Though no fencing has been done in the area as yet, the tribes people have been barred from accessing the forest produce like wood, which they depend on. This has impacted their livelihood. The women of the community are actively opposing the move.
