Burning Issues

Hurry and submit your comments on the tribal Bill!

Most Urgent

As you might be  aware, the Government is all set to make the Tribal Bill ( 2006 ) an Act in the monsoon

session of Parliament.  The Ministry of Tribal Affairs has in the meantime asked for comments and

objections from the Public ( to be sent by August 3 2007).  The draft rules can be read at http://www.tribal.gov.in

However, most of us "Public" are so skeptical about the Government that we do not even consider taking

such opportunities to make way for a healthy debate and a better law.
Also,  most of us do not have the time or inclination to go through pages and pages of rules/regulations.
But there is hope still. We have put together a number of expert opinions and well thought out comments by people who have understood and analyzed the draft rules,at the BLOG page


Please select the ideas which appeal to you and send them along with your comments to

Dr.Bachittar Singh
Joint Secretary, Ministry of Tribal Affairs
7th Floor, A-Wing, Shastri Bhavan
New Delhi-110001
E-mail: bsingh@nic.in

Please also send a copy of the letter to

Mr. Bharat Lal, I.F.S
Director, Ministry of Tribal Affairs
2nd Floor, A-Wing, Shastri Bhavan
New Delhi-110001

The subject reference can be given as Gazette Notification dated 19th June 2007
Draft Rules Scheduled Tribes and other Traditional Forest Dwellers (Recognition of Forest Rights ) Act,

2006(2 of 2007).  Though the comments can be sent by email, we suggest that you send an email and follow it up with a print copy on your letterhead / with your signatures.  Remember it is IMPORTANT that as many people as possible send in the objections -for them to count. So each one of us need to act, individually.  Time is short-comments received after
3rd August will not be read.
