Gurudurupi Village is located in Kalahandi district of Odisha. Using the Forest Rights Act, village residents have received Community Forest Rights titles over 170.92 acres of land. The village also resides 14 Individual Forest Rights title holders. The conflict started when forest department planted the entire area claimed under CFR and fenced it. This restricted title holders to use the forest for their livelihood activities.
