5. Working plan prescription for the forest land proposed for diversion : Working plan prescription for the forest land proposed for diversion are coppice with standard system (CWS) and plantation, Rehabilitation and plantation cum-soil conservation working circle. In CWS system over wood of standards usually of seedling origin composed of various age classes in multiple of coppice rotation are marked for retention. All other trees above predetermined girth classes are felled. CWS consists of two distinct elements. 1. A lower even aged story created as simple coppice. 2. An upper story of standards forming an un-even aged crop and treated as high forests on the principle of selection system. The Coppice is termed Underwood and standards as over wood. The object of the standards is to provide a certain proportion of large timber to furnish seeds for natural regeneration and in certain cases to afford protection to the coppice crop against frost. Tending of young crop is done on established silvicultural practices under strict supervision of senior officers. Every effort will be made to regenerate such forests by protection with the active cooperation of VFMPCs and in only exceptional cases, artificial regeneration will be resorted to only in those areas where permanent blanks are more than 1.00 ha. and root stock is absent and despite best efforts natural regeneration has failed to come up. The Rehabilitation working Circle comprises such Sal and miscellaneous forests of the Division which are stagnation in bushy stage (Sal rooted wastes) or perpetual sapling stage due to extremely adverse biotic factors like unregulated felling, grazing and forest fire. This working circle contains the following types of areas:- 1. Area under rehabilitation working of the previous plan 2. parts of the plantation sites old or new rendered blank either because of inadequate protection or excessive biotic interferences 3. Area under CWS which de-generated into bushy or sapling forest due to excessive unregulated felling , grazing etc. No felling has been prescribed under this Working Circle. Salvage felling of only dead. dying and diseased trees, thinning and singling of stock and cutting and resizing of deformed or pollarded root stock will be permitted on sound silvicultural principles. The suitable area are planted with suitable endogenous and valuable species. The edaphic and other local factor are kept in mind while deciding about the suitable species. Soil and moisture conservation works are to be taken up along with marking and will be completed before onset of monsoon in the next year. These working include two main operations namely contour trenching, Nala bunding, Check-dams and silt detention dams as per site requirement and approved by competent authority. Plantations of fast growing species (QGS), fuel and fodder species, Bamboo plantations, lac plantations and Khair Plantations may be raised under this Working Circle. The main aim of the plantation would be to restock the blank areas where natural regeneration has failed to come up and provide employment to the people in plantation activities like planting, hoeing, weeding and protection. At the same time steps will be taken to reduce soil erosion by adopting soil and moisture conservation works along with planting of trees. Emphasis would be on conservation of water in forest areas as water is increasingly becoming scarce. Under soil conservation water harvesting structures, check dams, siltation dams, gully plugging, contour trenching will also be done.

Hazaribagh WestHazaribaghDFO RecommendedThe proposed site for construction of Transmission line was inspected on 20th. August, 2019 measuring an area of 20.555 Ha. in the corresponding villages Parbata, Belkapi, Masipiri, Tuio, deora, Madhupur, Madhuban, Gaipahari, Deoka, Chandgarh, Kendua, Padnatanr, Masani, Chalkusa, Ragdih, Sewatanr in Barhi Range. On inspection it was found that the patch of forest in Bero Protected Forest is predominate with Acacia and other species like Chakundi, Khair, Palas etc. In Madhgon, Chakundi, Jamun, Palas , Sidha are seen and likewise in Padnatand PF Palas, Sal etc are found and the average density is 0.4. The soil along the proposed transmission line is highly vulnerable to soil erosion. It has been recorded that Elephants have been criss crossing the proposed site especially in the Mauza Belkapi, Madhuban, Kendua, Chalkusa, Sewatand. Hence, all case should be taken to avoid electromition of wildlife especially Elephants, so it is recommended that ABC cables Insulated Aerial Bundled Cables / Underground cable should be used in the area and keeping the height of the lines more than the trunk height of the Elephants. Since, the present alignment involves least forest area and also that it would provide energy requirements to the people in the area, the proposal may be recommended.
HazaribaghCF RecommendedThe proposal is meant for construction and development of transmission system and also to mitigate the actual shortage of power due to non availability/inadequate capacity of transmission system in the area. A large number of people will be benefited by this project. In view of the aforesaid facts, this proposal is being recommended for the diversion of 20.555 ha. Forest Land for construction of 33 KV transmission line from Barkhatta Power Sub station to Chalkusa Power Sub station.Yes
