Tribal affairs ministry against diluting forest rights law.

Tribal affairs ministry against diluting forest rights law.

    The tribal affairs ministry has taken on the Union environment ministry afresh. It has warned that the Forest Rights Act does not provide any exception to the need for tribal consent to divert their traditional forest lands.
The letter from the tribal affairs ministry dated August 27 has countered the contention of the environment ministry and reiterated its stand even after the Prime Minister.
Business Standard had reported that the tribal affairs ministry had informed the PMO and the environment ministry that the law did not provide any exception and the only way to get rid of the need for consent would require an amendment to the law.
The formal missive from the environment ministry requesting the law ministry for this legal interpretation listed out several reasons why the tribal consent could be done away with.
The Fifth Schedule areas are those identified as those with higher tribal provisions where higher level of protection against alienation of land is provided under the Constitution.
The environment ministry has not as yet put out any circulars involving forest clearance procedures incorporating these views of the tribal affairs ministry.
