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."

Relief Granted: "The purported receipts do not indicate the S.Nos., or local names of the land in respect of which the payment is accepted. The same claimants who stated before the spl.dy.tahsildar, and Special Tahsildar that they have no lease documents or receipts with them in support of their claims produced the same before the S.O., bearing tell-tale evidence in both cases of over-writing against Eksala entry and interpolation of the date in the first case. The S.O.,, did not verify the relevant Estate/village records nor the claimants produced the certified copies there of before the collector or this court which leads to one to believe that the documents produced are false and created for getting patta. Thus there are no merits in the appeals which are dismissed."

The candidate has chosen a topical subject, very relevant to our thinking on culture, cognition and language. He has red widely and is familiar with the literature that matters. His linguistic and anthropological reasoning is sound. His language is clear and simple.

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.
