AN ESSENTIAL GUIDE ON THE UTILIZATION OF THE GODAVARI WATERS AND RESOURCES


 The RoFR act recognizes the dwelling site, religious places, burial grounds, village council sites along with places of MFP, water resources, biodiverisity etc and also PVT tenures. As the implementation boils down to title deeds for house sites and lands under cultivation, SAKTI engaged the Chenchu youth to document their traditional knowledge in their idiom and dialect, in encouraging them to assert as inborn foresters, capable of managing these resources as envisaged in the Act.


"Since SAKTI activities are mostly issue based and covering a large area, here we concentrate on the forest-related programmes of SAKTI for the present study."

All the papers regarding the rights of Chenchus PTGs in the Rasool tank of NSTR with dates and events. Subsequently Chenchus gained control over Yerrapenta, Srirangapur tanks.

The Minister for Fisheries requested the Minister forest to allow fishing cooperatives in the Rasool tank. The forest officers sought clarifications while the cooperative continued fishing. The Project Officer, ITDA, Srisailam sanctioned an amount to PTG Chenchus to release the fish lings.

The Chenchus were prevented by the fishermen society. Sakti found that the tank is in the scheduled area and represented to the Commission tribal welfare to instruct the officials to evict the fisher folk and protect the interest of Chenchus.

Since there is no response the village tribal development agency filed a petition in the High Court. The Court issued status quo orders in favor of Chenchus restraining the fisher folk from entering in to the tank. The District Collector in his reply attached the letters of the forest officers informing that fishing is not allowed in the sanctuary. The Court dismissed the petition of Chenchus. The Chenchus approached the Secretary tribal welfare department. The Secretary instructed to recognize rights of Chenchus under RFA. A cooperative of Chenchus was form for fishing.

The only information the government or media always compile carefully is on Naxalite encounters, never the violations of the instruments of rule of law such as minimum wages, fifth schedule, mismanagement of forests, equity in the distribution of welfare benefits, displacement, fragmentation of Socio-economic entities etc.
