  • On 13 February Supreme Court, hearing a decade-old petition challenging the constitutional validity of the Forest Rights Act (FRA), ordered: “claimants whose claims have been rejected and have attained finality should be evicted”. This order, if implemented, would have impacted 18.92 lakh forest dwelling families and more. The order was, however, suspended due to pressures from civil society and the centre and the states were required to submit responses within four months. The SC hearing is scheduled for 24 July.

  • “There have been several claims under #FRA that were filed, few of which were approved, few rejected and a few are still under consideration. However, the focus of the Court is brought to only the ones that were rejected; based on which, the court is convinced that there has been an encroachment… Such type of legal reasoning is fallacious!” In an interview with Teesta Setalvad, senior advocate Shomona Khanna explains why the FRA #SupremeCourt order is erroneous.

    ‪LIVE UPDATE #CycloneFani: Our team in Girala village, #Puri, #Odisha met this family which hasn’t eaten anything since May 2nd due to food & water scarcity in the area.‬ ‪On their return from the evacuation center, they found that the cyclone has destroyed their home. Till today they’re sustaining themselves with raw coconut and palm. But when we met them they insisted to share whatever little raw coconut they had with us.‬ During testing times like these it’s heartwarming to see people help each other in such dire circumstances. Your support will enable us to reach more flood affected people: https://donate.oxfamindia.org/cyclonefani #WeShallOvercome
