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."

He said under the employment generation scheme, Rs. 67.50 lakh has been spent for constructing buildings and Rs. 7 lakh for lift irrigation schemes in Girijan villages.

The ITDA official said 160 Girijans had been trained in mulberry cultivation, typewriting, incense stick production and driving under the Prime Minister's Rozgar Yojana this year at a cost of Rs. 1.61 lakh.
