Lamp society honours outgoing DCF

He was speaking after being felicitated by the Lamp Cooperative Society, on his promotion transfer to Mysore as the Conservator of Forests, on Saturday. Tribals have the open choice either to accept or reject the rehabilitation package that consists Rs 10 lakh in cash per family, he said.

He advised that the tribals could reap more benefits if they work in collaboration with their organisations, village forest committees and self-help groups (SHGs), by developing their skills and professionalism. Equal justice can be dispensed only when people abide by the legislations in a true sense, he said.

“Powers of the villages were centralised during the British period, which was continued even after independence. Economic and social equality can be achieved only when the administration of the villages are done in villages themselves,” Ravi observed.

Lamp Cooperative Society Secretary Seetharam Rai lauded the contributions of Mr Ravi. Vice President Kempegowdlu presided. Directors K Y Krishne Gowda, Narayana Nayaka, K V Chandrashekhar, EO Kantharaj were present.
