In Balangi Village located in Thuamul Rampur Block, South Forest Division, Kalahandi, the Forest Department took up plantation under CAMPA funds on the land already allotted to over 32 households under Individual Forest Rights, hence, violating the Forest Rights Act. Further, the area has been fenced to restrict access to the land and collection of NonTimber Forest Produce. It has had a deep impact on the community, especially the women who are unable to collect minor forest produce for household use as well as selling. The Gram Sabha members are now demanding free access to the already claimed land and are in the process of filling for Community Forest Rights. They are also in the process of filing a petition to the District Collector.
