1. Rule no. 7 (Act 2006 and 2007) instituted by the YAA states the prohibition on hunting and collecting rare and endangered species such as the tiger, sambar deer, tragopan, black bear, gaur, hoolock gibbon and pangolins. Defaulters will be fined Rs. 50,000 by the YAA. All villages under Yimkhiung jurisdiction are required to abide by these rules and report any violations.
2. Collection of flora and fauna is totally prohibited under Salomi’s CCA jurisdiction.
3. Collection of firewood and timber is prohibited in the CCA. Defaulters are imposed a fine of Rs. 7,000 per tree cut.
So far, residents from some neighbouring villages like Khongsa and Luthur have been fined for cutting down the trees from the community conserved area.
People from the community have depended directly on the forest to fulfil multiple needs. Earlier the village council had a system where they would have to donate timber from the forest to new members settling within the community from nearby villages. But today, citizens are trying to put more effort into conservation to preserve rare and endangered species from their primary and secondary forests.
The whole CCA is a no-take area. Collection of flora and fauna is totally prohibited. Further, collection of firewood and timber is also banned. This is a permanent practice covering 500ha.
