In Dumerbahal village under Meriabandhali Gram Panchayat, Kalahandi district, already 98 acres of land have been recognised under Community Forest Rights. Yet, the forest department took up plantation programme under MGNREGA funds on the claimed land without the consent of the villagers. The authorities limited themselves to orally communicating with the community. To restrict the access to the plantation area NonTimber Forest Products, the area has been fenced. The Gram Sabha is preparing for a public hearing to address the issue.
