House informed on Dharamshala MLA’s question

Replying to Dharamshala MLA Vishal Neharia’s question, forest minister Rakesh Pathania said according to the Forest Act of 1980, the use of forest land for non-forest purposes (change of use) without the prior consent of the Union Government is not permissible and hence cannot be legalised.
