Applied for Forest Rights land in 2010, Applied again this year, No news yet

My name is Santosh Painkra. I am calling from Madanpur panchayat in Podi Uproda block of Korba district in Chhattisgarh. I had filled up for land deeds under Forest Rights Act. I have filled it up again in 2013. I make round of officials who tell me that they have sent our application to top officials but have not heard back. I want to ask that we adivasis be given land deed under FRA, is it true or is it a hoax. For more Sanotsh Ji is at 09009803194
