      Nearly, every village had its own manly unmeasured forest s comprising trees, shrubs, grassland or barren land surrounding village or inside the village.   From old age, such forests were supposed to be assets of the village. The villagers had right on those forests for their uses for furniture, fences, cattle grazing and other uses. Trail accounted for agriculture and such forests for each village. Dr. Dabral states that the custom of village forest demarcation remains same as on now.
  In 1839, Batten declared that the community forest and agriculture land under villages will be recognized that have been measured and recorded. However, the villagers had opposite perception. Gairola (settlement revenue , division of Kumaun, page 210)  stated that Batten declared such declaration for favoring Europeans grab land for tea cultivation. Batten and Ramsey made clear that  villagers would not have rights on all land. Batten administration offered land for tea gardening in Garhwal and Kumaon.
  However, villagers used that unmeasured or government land as usual. Government called that land users land.
