  • I have done study on Benefit

    I have done study on Benefit Sharing under JFM programme (FDA) in Uttar Pradesh. Observations were more or less same. JFM members receive benefits only from Tendu Patta collection and labour works under Forest Dept. Only one Division has received share from timber revenue. Though UPVFJM Rules clearly mention share of Minor forest produces, neither JFM members nor forest officials are aware of it. And the villagers have to 'steal' or have to bribe the forest guard to collect MFPs. The situation now is that, neither JFM members nor Forest officials belief in JFM principle and awareness is also low. Forest and its resources are still suffering.
