In Garva village of Chatra district of Jharkhand, 100 ha. of land with Community Forest Rights (CFR) claim pending on it has been set aside for a CAMPA funded plantation by the Forest Department. Even though there is no fence as yet, the livelihood of locals has been impacted and there is a climate of fear. They have been facing trouble in procuring fuelwood, and they wish to protest. Aside from the CFR claimed land, 12.14 ha. land also has 25 pending claims for Individual Forest RIghts (IFR), none of which have yet been settled.
