The newly instituted Survey and Demarcation Division shall conduct the survey and definiton of boundaries of the so called reserved Forests of Bhutan and shall widely spread information about the forest areas included under this provision, in order to ascertain eventual claims of rights on forests and their products, land and water courses or grazing and pasture rights. The involved land shall be excluded from the reserved forest areas or expropriated or acquired. The right of cultivation shall be restricted or abolished; the right of water use shall be totally or partially accepted or refused; the right to pasture shall be granted with the payment of a Grazing Tax and the amount of cattle grazing in that area shall be determined by the Forestry Department.
