Abstract: FRA- In 2006, Scheduled Tribes and other Traditional Forest Dwellers (Recognition of Forest Rights) Act was passed which granted legal recognition to the rights of traditional forest-dwelling communities. The FRA aims to address the historical injustice done to those communities whose forest rights have so far not been legally recorded and thereby were denied their tradition right to forest lands and resources. The group also shared the field experiences of the village Bhalunka, Cuttack, Odisha, Chakradharpur, Keonjhar and Soura Singapur, Rayagada and based on the field experience, the group put forward some suggestions to improve the implementation of the act. They suggested that local NGOs must come forward for help in providing services and monitor the livelihood activities. Awareness building of the community people should be done about different provisions of the Act to make people aware. The community must take initiative for the management of forest and their livelihood. Moreover, the discussions were on Impact of the Forest Rights Act, 226, on Deforestation, Tribal welfare and poverty. Land alienation and tribal people's rights.
