ABSTRACT
In this comment, the author describes the intricacies of the Scheduled Tribes and Other Traditional Forest Dwellers (Recognition of Forest Rights) Act, 2006. He highlights the role of the forest dwellers in urging the legislature for the enactment of such a legislation. According to the author it is unjustified on the part of the government to acquire forest land without following the due process of law. Throughout his work the author focuses on answering the question as to whether the Forest Rights Law can replace a conservation regime based on the exclusion of the citizens from the forests.
