Short notes on “inviolate forest areas”.

     Inviolate forest areas are supposed to be pristine forests where any commercial activity would lead to irreversible damage and hence they need to be protected.

  A group of ministers constituted by the Cabinet secretariat in September 2011 had asked MoEF to identify inviolate forests. The group was set up to look into matters relating to mining and other development projects. Almost a year later, MoEF formed a 16-member committee under its secretary to formulate the parameters. It has representatives of the National Biodiversity Authority, Forest Survey of India, Wildlife Institute of India, National Tiger Conservation Authority, MoEF and principal chief conservators of forests from some states.

  The committee has indicated six parameters, including forest type, biological richness, wildlife value, forest cover, landscape integrity and hydrological value.
