143. Every person who carries on work or causes work to be carried on in the forest, other than forest management activities carried on under a plan approved by the Minister under this Act, shall inform the forest protection organization responsible for the territory concerned of his intention and obtain a forest protection plan from it, if the organization deems it expedient. If the work is to be carried on outside the intensive protection zone, the costs incurred to determine the necessity of obtaining a plan and, where applicable, those relating to the preparation of the plan are to be met by the person who carries on work in the forest or causes work to be carried on in the forest.
The plan must be submitted to the Minister, for his approval, in the form and tenor determined by regulation of the Government.
Once approved by the Minister, the plan is binding and the costs of the surveillance operations required by the plan shall be assumed by the person carrying on the work in the forest.
