Omprakash Ratnakar and Dr. Namita Sharma
The present paper attempts to examine the production and collection pattern of forest produces from 2014-15 to 2019-20 in Chhattisgarh state. Forest plays a dominant role in socio-economic development of any state, it provides livelihood, shelters and employment for the rural people. In this paper the authors made an effort to analyse the present status of the forest in Chhattisgarh and the trends in production of forest produce wherever it was minor or major forest produces. The study shows that there is continuous decline in the production of both minor and major forest produces after the particular time frame throughout the study period. The government of Chhattisgarh and concern authorities have to take effective initiative for sustainable growth of forest resources.
