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."

 Eluru march 31:

 The clashing tribals and the ex-zamindar of Humumpet, H. Ramachandramurthy alias Rampandu, on Sunday arrived at an agreement for settlement of a land dispute through constitution of a commission of inquiry with the Project Officer, Integrated Tribal Development Agency (ITDA), as its chairman and the representatives from both the groups as members.

 The agreement was made between the two groups at a joint meeting held I Polavaram following an initiative by the police. The PO, ITDA, Polavaram Mandal Revenue Officer, the Jangareddygudem Sub-Divisional Police Officer, the ex-Zamindar and representatives from tribals took part in the joint meeting.

 A piece of 250 acres falling under L and D Pet revenue village has turned out to be a bone of contention between the tribals of Kukala hamlet and Mr. Ramachandramurty. The tribals took over the lands from his possession and has been enjoying them for about five years.

 The struggle for land has resulted in a polic3e firing in 1996, leading to the killing of a tribal women, karam Parvathi.

 Meanwhile, the rival groups agreed the keep cashew produce reaped from orchards on the disputed land in he custody of the PO, ITDA, till the issue was settled by the commission of inquiry. As per the agreement, the police and the revenue departments should not interfere in the dispute. In line with the decision taken at the meeting, the landlord is supposed to produce all the relevant documents before the commission and establish his claim over the land. 

 The sub-Divisional Police Officer promised to revoke all the cases registered against the tribals in course of the land struggle as a quid pro quo for the latter’s resolve to settle the issue through negotiations.

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.
