BACK RESOLUTION PASSED BY MANIPUR LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY HOME
 
 
Subject Matter: Denudation of the forest (Prevention thereof)
Adopted: 03.08.1981 

 

WHEREAS this Assembly considers that it is desirable to have a uniform law throughout India to prevent denudation of the forest wealth of the country by regulating felling of trees in urban and rural areas and for all matters connected therewith or ancillary and incidental thereto; 

AND WHEREAS the subject matter of such a law is relatable mainly to matters enumerated in entry 5 (Local Government, that is to say, the constitution and powers of municipal corporations, improvement trusts, district boards, mining settlement authorities and other local authorities for the purpose of Local-self Government on village administration) and entry 18 (Land, that is to say, rights over land, land tenures including the relation of landlord and tenant, and the collection of rents; transfer and alienation of agricultural land; and improvement and agricultural loans; colonisation.) in List II in the Seventh Schedule to the Constitution of India; 

AND WHEREAS Parliament has no power to make such a law for the States with respect to the matters enumerated in entries 5 and 18 in List II aforesaid, except as provided in Articles 249 and 250 of the Constitution of India; 

AND WHEREAS it appears to this Assembly to be desirable that to prevent denudation of the forest wealth of the country, felling of trees in urban and rural areas and all matters connected therewith or ancillary and incidental thereto should be regulated in the State of Manipur by Parliament by law; 

NOW, THEREFORE, in exercise of the powers conferred by clause (1) of Article 252 of the Constitution of India, this Assembly hereby resolves that to prevent denudation of the forest wealth of the country, felling of trees in urban and rural areas and all matters connected therewith or ancillary and incidental thereto should be regulated in the State of Manipur by Parliament by law.
