Abstract: In Assam, state regulation on the forest is common since the Ahom rules itself. However, during the Ahom rule, the State only regulated the territory of the forest and the rights over the resources of the forest were enjoyed by the local communities. But after the British invasion of Assam, the Colonial Rulers took absolute control over both the territory and the resources of the forest and practiced the policy of exclusion by declaring most of the forest tracts as Reserved Forest. The Imperial Government initiated massive exploitation of forest resources for commercial gain through their various laws and policies ignoring the native practices of management of forest as well as the ecological needs. This policy of the state affected the socio-cultural functions of forests and also their ecological functions. However, after independence, the state considered the conservation of forests as a necessary factor for biomass conservation and favored scientific management of the forest. But the legacy of the colonial policies continued for a long time. As a result of which the needs of the local forest-dependent communities remained unrecognized. But subsequently, concerns for recognition of the rights of those people were given in the laws of the land considering such recognition vital for sustainable forestry and ensuring community participation in the management of the forest. However, the shift from production forestry to sustainable forestry under the Indian Jurisprudence has undergone a severe transformation in the policy discourse of the state. These transformations need careful observation since they have been facing several criticisms, for which research becomes important. Therefore, this paper shall analyze the various laws and policies that are responsible in bringing the above-mentioned transformation for introducing sustainable forestry in Assam.
