Présentation : India has enacted the Scheduled Tribes and Other Traditional Forest Dwellers (Recognition of Forest Rights) Act, 2006 (hereinafter referred to as the FRA) to undo the “historical injustice” committed against the forest dwelling Scheduled Tribes and other traditional forest dwellers who have been living in the forests for centuries. However, the Scheduled Tribes and Other Traditional Forest Dwellers (Recognition of Forest Rights) Rules, 2007 end up perpetuating the historical injustices. (source : Executive Summary). As of 31 January 2012, a total of 31,68,478 claims have been received and 27,24,162 claims (85.98%) have been disposed off. Out of the total claims disposed off, 12,51,490 titles (45.94%) were distributed and 14,72,672 claims (54%) were rejected. Even in cases where land titles are issued, they are vaguely worded and often without clear maps or demarcation of any boundary, area etc. In many cases, more than one person/family has been granted title over the same plot of land.
