Sundergarh is a tribal dominated area under Fifth Schedule of the constitution where the provisions of the Panchayats (Extension to Scheduled Areas) Act, is applicable. Community members of Tumkela claimed community forest resource rights under FRA & claims are pending in Sub-divisional Level Committee/Divisional Level Committee for a long time. After repeated reminder, Gram Sabha members decided to exercise power given under PESA and they have planned self-rule and declared their CFR area by putting a board.In the same land where the community have their rights district administration has allowed developmental work which is illegal.As per FRA guidelines when the claim is in the process there should not be any external interference in that area without the consent of Gram Sabha. Interference by the district administration in this village was widely opposed by Gram Sabha.Gram Sabha members are now demanding recognition of their CFR rights as the district administration threatened community saying strict action will be taken against the person who will interfere in the development work.
