Case Study: Achintya Kumar Sinha

Achintya Kumar Sinha began his career with the Indian Forest Service when he joined the Tripura Rehabilitation and Plantation Corporation Limited (TRPC) in 1989. During his tenure at the Divisional Forest Office, Ambasa, he involved the forest staff, a local youth group and the Voluntary Health Association of Tripura to revive a patch of deforested land. This was probably Northeast India’s first ever Joint Forest Management (JFM) project, making Tripura the eighth Indian state to embrace JFM. Among his inexhaustible and notable list of his achievements are his work to rehabilitate shifting cultivators belonging to a primitive tribe, rationalizing the timber accounting system and capacity building in various Protected Areas. For his dedicated service to India’s forests, Achintya Kumar Sinha was awarded The Balipara Foundation Annual Award.
