Rs."0" in Andhra and Rs.100/- in Chattisgar

Rs."0" in Andhra and Rs.100/- in Chattisgarh: Cassia tora Linn: Chakunda (Hindi) Thentam-Emapalli (Telugu) Seeds were sold at Rs.100/-. This plant grows like wead in the fields of our agency areas. These seeds are used by pharmasuticals for making medicines to treat Skin disease, Asthma and Diarrhoea. Our people dont collect and use the seed or leaf. For every known and unknown variety of Minor Forest Produce in our forests has demand in Chattisgarh. Our tribal people used to collect number of MFPs and take them to KONTA sandy on Thursday for sale. All the  time, they get good amount of money than Andhra and some times they get Rice by barter system. However, our people take more MFP to Chattisgarh because of market for every seasonal and nonseasonal forest produce. Our Government and private sector should ponder into real values of the MFP and create an opportunities to Tribal community for sustainable livelihoods.
