It was decided in the meeting that the Forest Department and SFC would jointly inspect the job of marking of trees by May 10, 2012.

The meeting decided that the SFC would open more sale outlets at appropriate locations to meet the requirement of people.
The Minister asked the officers to encourage registration of private sale timber depots for sale of imported timber so that it will minimize the pressure on forests.
