In what way do you think does this act make up for the injustice done to the tribal people in the past 200 years?
The Forest Rights Act, 2006 majorly gave three reasons for passing the new law in relation to the conditions prevailing from the past 200 years.
1. It aimed to conserve the forests as well as provide for livelihood and food security of the forest dwellers.
2. It recognised the forest rights on the ancestral lands and accepted the gross injustice that had been done to the tribal people and others by denying their traditional rights over forests.
3. It recognised the insecurity of land rights and access rights of forest dwellers especially those who were forced to relocate due state development plans such as dams and tiger reserves.
The reasons behind the enactment of this Act to a great extent make up for the injustice done to the tribal people because it confers on forest dwellers and other traditional users of forests, their traditional rights over the forests and also entitlement to the lands they use.
