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."

4. The M.R.O.Aswaraopet Khammam

•  The M.R.O. Dammapet,Khammam

This is a writ petition filed in public interest seeking effective implementation of Land Transfer Regulation in the Sheduled Areas of Khammam Dist. Particularly Aswaraopet and Dammapeta Mandals by initiating survey and verification of lands.
Relief Sought: declaring the action of the respondent in not implementing the Land Transfer Regulation in the schedule areas at Khammam Dist. Particularly Aswaraopet and Dammapet of Khammam Dist. And consequently direct the authorities to initiate survey and verification of the lands taken up by the Wesft Godavari Administration with necessary modifications as per the laws applicable to schedule areas of Khammam Dist.
Relief Granted: " Respondents 3 and 5 have filed counters. It is seen therefrom that the Dist administration has launched a special survey in the said Mandals and the Govt. has assigned considerable extent of land to the tribal residents. Moreover, steps are also being taken to evict the non-tribals as per law wherever instances of unauthorised occupation have come to the notice of the officials concerned. It is also stated that the assignees were put in physical possession after special survey. In view of the various steps that are taken, we do not think that any further directions are called for in this writ petition. Suffice it to observe that effective monitoring should go on so as to ensure the implementation of Land Transfer Regulation and special attention should continue to be given for redressing individual grievances. Learned counsel for the petitioner has stated that there are certain instances where the tribals are not put in possession of the lands assigned to them and it is further stated that effective steps have not been taken in some cases for evicting the persons in illegal occupation of land. Certain instances are given in the reply affidavit filed just now. The particulars given in the reply affidavit may be verified by the concerned Revenue authorities and if any remedial action has to be taken. The same shall be taken in accordance with law.

With regard to the allegation that retired M.R.O. who is associated with the petitioner Association , is not being allowed to go to the villages concerned for getting on the spot information , we are not inclined to go into this question as it is a different issue and would enlarge the scope of this writ petition. Moreover, specific particulars are not forthcoming in this regard. If the movement of any person is restricted otherwise than in accordance with law, the person concerned is not remediless. The writ petition is closed with the above observations ".
