On 13 February 2019, the Supreme Court of India issued an order for evictions of those whose claims under the Scheduled Tribes and Other Traditional Forest Dwellers (Recognition of Forest Rights) Act ('Forest Rights Act' or 'FRA') have been rejected 'with finality'.' On 28 February 2019, this order was put 'on hold' to determine whether due process had been followed in the rejection of claims, and under what law evictions may be carried out since the Forest Rights Act does not provide for evictions.
