Bamboo not a tree any more President Clears Ordinance Amending Forest Act
26 November 2017 Current Affairs: President Ram Nath Kovind cleared an ordinance amending the Indian Forest Act, 1927. The ordinance omits bamboo grown in non-forest areas from the definition of trees, thereby exempting it from requiring permits for felling or transportation.

Before the ordinance was issued, the definition of tree in the Act included palm, bamboo, brushwood, and cane.

Bamboo grown in forest areas shall continue to be governed by the Forest Conservation Act, 1980.
