New Trade Created New Employment and New Services


While many people lost their livelihood after the government took control of forests, some even benefited from the new rule.

Many people started trading in forest products.
These trades in India are not something new, since they started in the Medieval Period itself.


There are records stating the adivasis traded with elephants, hides, horns, silk cocoons etc.

During the British rule, trade was controlled by the government.
The Government gave specific forest area for lease, to European companies.
Indians were made to work for these companies.
Their working condition and their wages were very bad.
Forest communities in India, began to rebel against the restrictions that were imposed on them. The rebellion in the Kingdom of Bastar , in the year 1910 can be taken as a case-study.
