In May 2020, the Chhattisgarh government had made the state forest department the nodal agency for Community Forest Resource Rights (CFRR). The decision was reversed in June 2020 after protests.
The study has recommended to the government to notify a part of the Mirzapur’s forest area as a conservation reserve with sloth bear as a flagship species. It noted that the Mirzapur forests are an important wildlife corridor for protected areas around it.
