Explanation:

Under the Scheduled Tribes and Other Traditional Forest Dwellers (Recognition of Forest Rights) Act, 2006, the Gram Sabha shall be the authority to initiate the process for determining the nature and extent of individual or community forest rights or both.

The Gram Sabha, which is the assembly of all adult members of a village or a cluster of villages, plays a crucial role in the implementation of the Act. It has the power to initiate the process of recognition and verification of forest rights within its jurisdiction. The Gram Sabha is responsible for identifying the individuals or communities who are eligible for claiming forest rights and providing relevant documents and evidence to support their claims.
