India had a Forest Policy since _________.


ANSWER

1894


SOLUTION
The British introduced scientific management of forests through a centralized approach to forest management and development. The first formal government approach to forestry can be traced to the enactment of the National Forest Policy of $$1894$$ which stressed on conserving forests for maintaining environmental stability and meeting basic needs of fringe forest user groups. The policy was revised in $$1952$$ and the new policy emphasized on an extension of forests beyond the traditional forest areas. This gave impetus to social forestry and $$agro/farm$$ forestry. This policy was the harbinger of the green movement in the country. It also proposed that $$60$$% of the land in the hills and $$20$$% in the plains and in all $$33$$% of the total geographical area should be under forest/tree cover.The National Forest Policy was once again revised in $$1988,$$ which envisaged community involvement in the protection and regeneration of forests. It accorded highest priority to sustainable management of the forest resource.
