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."

 1.   I  beg to submit here with my report an the question  of chenchu rights in two parts.  Part I contains the statistics and other information gathered by no during the course of my enquiry and though all the information contained there in maynot directly concern the subject under enquiry, I have added then to this reports as I considered that they may be usefully recorded as part of my report part II contains my ro osala regarding the chenchu rights.

 2. My enquiry was concerned C with the rights relating to dwellingsites, cultivation and gerden lands allowed as enclosure free reservation of settlement, and with their relating to free grassing allowed at settlement.

 3. Rights relating to dwelling sites, cultivation and garden lands, a very large number of the dwelling sites cultivation’s and garden lands ( vide append IX VI ) allowed at settlements unreserved enclosures have been afforestthese enclosures. But this is not possible for the reasons detail in paragraphs 52,52 and 54 of my report.

 4. The only alternative will be to extinghiah these rights by making use of the right of precipitin vested in Government at the time of settlement. This procedure may not define the status of these enclosures.  But will make it impossible.

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.
