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."

Crop snatching in rural West Godavari

The Indian Express

Monday December 16, 1996.

Jangareddigudem, Dec. 15: Despite the assurance of the officials to the non-Girijans and their efforts to instill some confidence in them, Girijans in the agency area have been appropriating the paddy crop belonging to the non-Girijans.

They are winnowing the crop and loading it in the sacks under the very nose of the officials and carrying it away. On Saturday too, a similar incident occurred at Muppinawarigudem near Buttaigudem. Though the Kovvuru RDO Sarada Devi had camped at the mandal office they have boldly been carrying out their exploits.

The snags in the functioning of the revenue officials too surfaced in this incident of crop-snatching. To solve the problem and to console the victims for the time being, the collector had distributed pattas for poramboke lands near Buttaigudem among 52 persons in July last.

But these lands are being cultivatred by the Dalits for the past 50 years. The pattas were given under the impression that it would calm down the Girijans for some time but the norms were violated and pattas were given for lands in the tank area and at the bunds. The Girijans have snatched the crop in these lands.

At Reddiganapavaram on Friday, the Girijans spoke faulting the revenue officials in the presence of RDO Saradadevi, DSPs Manohar Rao from Narasapuram and J Brahma Reddy from Jangareddigudem besides the other officials in the matter of pilfering the crop.

The Girijans have made it clear that they would not leave lands on which there was the court's stay and those which were encroached.

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.
