KakinadaRajahmundryDFO Not-RecommendedThe Gudlawada village is an interior habitation and there is every chance of encroachment of Forest Land by the villagers and there are very less number of households existing in this village. Providing BT Road into interior area will open doors to the illegal encroachers from Gudlawada village. Further, there is a threat of Maoist activities in this area as this area is very near to Andhra Orissa Boarder. Hence, the permission may not be accorded to the user agency for diversion of forest area in Comp.no. 18,20 & 23, Batchuluru RF in Tangana kota beat, Gurthedu section of Rampachodavaram range for formation of road from Pathakota to Gudlawada in favour of the Executive Engineer, TW Division, Rampachodavaram as there are very less households existing in Gudlawada village
