Empowering STs with Community Rights, A Priority – Kantilal Bhuria
While expressing the concern over receiving the less number of community rights from all over the country, Shri Kantilal Bhuria, the Minister of Tribal Affairs said that the empowering the Scheduled Tribes (ST) with their community rights is the priority of the Government. He was inaugurating the Meeting of State Secretaries/ Commissioners of Tribal Welfare/ Development to review the progress of implementation of Scheduled Tribes and Other Traditional Forest Dwellers (Recognition of Forest Rights) Act 2006, here today. The Minister of State for Tribal Affairs, Shri Mahadeo Singh Khandela was also present.

Shri Bhuria informed that till the month of March 2011, 30,61,783 claims have been received out of which 11,28,729 titles have been distributed, but still a lot has to be achieved. He asked the States to do away with the hurdles that obstruct the implementation of the Act and can make way in implementing the Act in its true spirit. He further added the it is high time that tribals were made aware of their community rights so that they can make claims and receive title deeds in time.

The Minister of State for Tribal Affairs, Shri Mahadeo Singh Khandela stressed on the need for a new strategy with the help of collective information, intellect and experience that can work proactively in implementing the FRA.
