The nation has the objective is to cover one-third of the area with trees and forests. The livelihood of rural and indigenous inhabitants as well as the preservation of biodiversity depend on India's forest ecosystems. This article examines the history, evolution, and ramifications of India's legislation pertaining to forest rights. It makes the case that the law governing forest rights has to be expanded in order to aid in tribal development. Locals now have more access to and control over forest resources because to a number of government, NGOs, and civil society initiatives.
