Most of the Aravalli's in southern Haryana belongs to the panchayat and are protected under the Punjab Land Preservation Act (PLPA),1900

The amndement will destroy almost 60000+ acres of forest cover, which is 50% of the entire Aravalli range in South Haryana in the districts of Gurugram, Faridabad, Nuh, Mehendargarh and Rewari

It's important to know that Haryana has the lowest forest cover in the whole of India

This amendment will also make PLPA not applicable in urban areas of Gurgaon and Faridabad, where master plans have been passed and open's up the entire zone of the Aravalli forests to real estate development

Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar on Friday claimed that the amendment proposed in the Punjab Land Preservation Act was aimed at “protecting Aravallis”
