Impact by partner

The FRA activities were initiated in Malkangiri district focusing on 10 habitation of Kalimela block. Ten claims under FRA were submitted, which got approved. As a result the FRA activity which has been stagnant in the district for quite a few years had gained momentum. Though about 100 titles got approved by the DLC, the titles documents are not handed over to community due to election notifications in recent times. Various other departments have also agreed to support the community driven livelihood programmes and schemes for FRA lands.
