Orissa HC allows forest rights to tribals

Cuttack: The State Government's bid to stop Maoists from wooing tribals got a boost when the High Court on Wednesday allowed it to distribute forest rights and forestlands to the traditional dwellers of forests. Subject to certain conditions, the High Court vacated an interim stay imposed by it about a year ago on implementation of the Scheduled Tribes and Other Traditional Forest Dwellers (Recognition of Forest Rights) Act, 2006. "With the vacation of the stay, the State Government can now go ahead with its proposal to distribute record of rights (Pattas) to the forest dwellers which would go a long way in tackling the Naxal menace in the State," said Advocate General Ashok Mohanty.
