Forest Area

Land

The Forest Conservation Act was enacted in the year 1980 with a view to check further deforestation, as the degradation in forests ultimately results in ecological imbalance. The basic premise of this act is that forests of the country have to be conserved and developed for ecological security, environmental stability and sustainable development. The act lays emphasis on restriction on the de-reservation of forest or use of forest land for non-forest purpose and principally it provide a framework and mechanism where in if any demand arises for forest land for non- forestry purposes then in that case if no alternatives are available, the minimum forest land is to be diverted for non- forestry purposes with due compensatory measures.
