BTC chief Hagrama Mohilary had ceremonially distributed land pattas to claimants under Forest Right Act, 2006. The land pattas were distributed under the Integrated Tribal Development Project.
Mohilary in his speech said the villagers from 28 recognized forest villages under Haltugaon Forest Division were given land pattas under Forest Rights Act, 2006. He said the indigenous tribal people who had been in the forest for over 25 years and non-tribal for over 75 years were eligible for claiming land title.
He said after getting land pattas, the villagers would be able to enjoy all the government privileges. Schools, roads, health centers, drinking water and other government schemes would reach the villages, he said, adding that his council would provide all facilities to the villagers.
He also said his council would lay stress on skill development so that the unemployed youths could become self-reliant. Besides, the villagers would be provided job cards, Kisan Credit Card, free medical card, and PMAY houses.
Mohilary said the BPF was not working only for the people of the BTC area but also recognized forest villages of other districts of the State.
Sources from ITDP said 1,410 families of 28 villages were distributed land pattas. The villages comprised eight-under Dhwrwmpur Gram Sabha and 20 villages under Chandrapur Gram Sabha.
