In Re: TN Godavarman Thirumalpad vs UoI 2024 INSC 59 – Goa Foundation vs State Of Goa 2024 INSC 57- Identification Of Private Forests

Identification Of Private Forests – existing criteria for identification of private forests in the State of Goa are adequate and valid, hence, they require no alteration. The Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change guidelines, as well as the Scheduled Tribes & other Traditional Forest Dwellers (Recognition of Forest Rights) Act, 2006, are clear and unambiguous, as they have exempted the application of the Forest Conservation Act, 1980, on areas that are less than 1 hectare and where not more than 75 trees have to be cut. (Para 69)
