The official conservation efforts began in 1987, when the Acharya Jagdish Chandra Bose Briksha Mitra Sangha (AJCBMS) was officially formed. This organisation helped people understand the importance of conservation. After Joint Forest Management (JFM) was adopted by the Tripura Government in 1993, the forest was brought under the JFM program. A Forest Protection and Regeneration Committee was formed, and many other committees helped to develop the rules for everyone to follow regarding the forest. This was successful, and the forest began regenerating rapidly. Now NTFP collection is possible and the women have started making sticks for incense and ice-cream to get more income. Many socio-economic problems need to be addressed in the future, but this initiative was a success.
