He also asked them to allocate funds to the projects under the district plan as per the importance of each project, so that these projects don't suffer for want of funds.
Commissioner Secretary of Forests Manoj Diwedi suggested the Deputy Commissioners to start a special anti-encroachment drive in their respective districts, so that the forest land would be retrieved from encroachers. He also suggested them to expedite the process of issuing forest clearance certificates for the projects of immediate public importance.
