All of us got deeds under FRA but only for half the land we were cultivating...

Rajim is visiting Pathiapali village in Kanjia Panchayat of Kasdol block of Baloda Bazar district in Chhattisgarh where she meets Kamal Barik who tells her that all 38 adivasis of his village have got land deeds under Forest Rights Act. But no Revenue Inspector visited them as per law and they were given half of the land they were farming. Van Samiti have been made without consulting Gram Sabha and a forest person is secretary which is illegal. Rajim@9977641368
