In 2016 upon receiving information of illegal encroachers having ROR, the Thoubal Forest department had urged the Thoubal DC to withdraw the ROR and evict the illegal encroachers, but no action had been taken up till date, he added.

Commending the public of Lilong SDO Angom Shijalembi said in the survey the measurement of forest area and revenue areas had been properly examined.
