the forest area covered about 215*0 sq km. 
From the census report it is found that the population 
in and near the forest area were 5»99»991» 8,98,264 
and 11,73»015 during the y«ar of 1961, 1974 and 1981 
respectively. Therefore it is clear that the forest 
area Eire deteriorating day by day with the increase 
of population. According to the above study it is 
evident that the ultimate result from the aforesaid 
interference is the severe destruction in the forest 
cover, composition and ecosystem. However, if the 
biotic pressure increases day by day in the above 
manner the forest cover may be eradicated in future.
