GRANT OF LANDS ADJACENT TO FOREST AREA

(1). It is irregular to grant lands out of the State forest without getting the area disafforested in the first instance. A margin of 5 chains or 110 yards should be maintained between the forest boundary and the margin of cultivated area and on no account should this reserve be curtailed in their enthusiasm to grant lands under Grow More Food Scheme. The practice of granting lands out of Forest area, which is not surrendered by the Forest Department should cease. (R.C.'s Circular No. R. Dis. Cl-1705—51-52, dated 6th November 1951).


(2). In order to present the inadvertant grant of lands forming portions of State Forests without consulting the Forest Department, as soon as a State Forest is constituted by a notification, necessary entries should be made in the Revenue Rocords, and the forest settlement maps should be sent to the survey departments for incor¬porating the changes at once in the village maps. The Chief Conservator should also take prompt steps to have the limits of the State Forest demarcated on the ground. Revenue Officers should not be satisfied wiith a mere reference to the khetwar and other village records, but should consult the Forest Department, if there is any doubt as to whether the land applied is reserved or not. (G.O. No. R. 2991-3000—L.R. 298-28-2, dated 2nd October 1928) .
