A sign post erected by the forest department reads - FOREST FOR NEED AND NOT FOR GREED - seen near the Hasdeo Arand forest area of the Raigarh District where large number of coal mining activities take place. 

Photographs for a story on land allocation for coal mines in Chattisgarh.  Modi's new government in the centre has relaxed the environmental regulations so the land can be allocated to both public and private sector companies easily.
