The SC’s February 13 order on FRA was consistent with its earlier stand

The Forests Rights Act was designed to undo “historical injustice” to those who have primarily resided in and who depend on the forest or forests land for bona fide livelihood needs prior to December 2005. But since there is no cutoff date for receiving new claims, and gram sabhas are empowered to extend the 90-day window, this process has continued for 13 years and seems to be a never ending one.
On February 13, the Supreme Court asked 17 state governments to evict an estimated one million tribal and other households living in forests after their claims of the right to live in forests were rejected under The Scheduled Tribes and Other Traditional Forest Dwellers (Recognition of Forest Rights) Act, 2006 (FRA). On February 28, the SC ordered a stay of its order.(HT FILE PHOTO)
