Kaptapalli and 10 other villages in Nuagaon block of Nayagarh district have been protecting the forest area for a decade. After 1980 cashew corporation officials came and told the villagers to plant cashew in the community protection area and officials had also told community people that the benefits of the cashew will go to village fund. Keeping this assurance in mind the villagers had started working for that but when fruit came up cashew corporation has taken away all the control from the community people. After 2010 the villagers have filed CR (Form B). As per FRA Gram Sabha members have started asserting their rights. One village has the earning capacity of Rs.5 lakhs to Rs.10 lakhs from cashew plantation.Before a month ago community members got to know that without taking their consent the cashew corporation tendered the community forest land .On this Kaptapalli Gram panchayat's people have filed a petition in the collector office and collector has already sent a letter to Tahsildar for further inquiry. The tender notice is very recent hence, the investment and land area detail is not mentioned.
