• In south west Jharkhand, six thousands 'Indira Awas' would be constructed in six panchayats in Saranda forest range. The Central Rural Development Ministry has given the permission. 

  • The forest range was in the grip of the naxals for years and the security forces had freed them last year through an operation named ‘Anaconda’. 

  • The Ministry has also agreed to the state government proposal of six check dams in the forest range.
