Uttarakhand seeks special dispensation for use of forest land to expedite rural roads development

To accelerate pace of road development in rural areas mainly in the hilly state. The Government of Uttarakhand has requested special dispensation for use of forest land. This request is pending for nearly seven months with the Centre. The forest cover in the hill districts is between 50 to 85 per cent. In such a situation, most of the rural road projects would require diversion of forest land. For this approval from the central government is required leading to delays in undertaking such public infrastructure projects.
