Expert Answer

The forests of India are classified into three categories by the government of India. They are

1. Reserved forests: More than half of India’s forests have been declared as reserved forests. Hunting and grazing are banned in the reserved forests in order to conserve forests and protect wildlife.

2. Protected forests: About one-third of the total forests have been demarcated as protected forests to protect the forests from any further depletion.

3. Unclassed forests: These forests are owned and managed by the government as well as by the local communities. Various tribes use these forests as resources to fulfil their basic minimum requirements.
