When an area is notified as a Community Reserve, the governing authority is not necessarily the Chief Wildlife Warden of the State. The management and governance of Community Reserves involve multiple stakeholders, including local communities, forest departments, and other relevant authorities.

Community Reserves are established to conserve wildlife and their habitats. Hunting is prohibited in Community Reserves to ensure the protection of wildlife.

Community Reserves often allow local communities to engage in sustainable collection of non-timber forest produce, such as medicinal plants, fruits, nuts, and other forest-based products.

In Community Reserves, local communities are usually allowed to continue their traditional agricultural practices, which are often integrated with the conservation objectives of the reserve.
