BMC

Biodiversity Management Committees have to be constituted by every local body i.e. Village Panchayats and Municipal Councils under Section 41 of Biological Diversity Act, 2002and Rule 22 of Biological Diversity Rules, 2004, for the purpose of promoting conservation, sustainable use and documentation of biological diversity including preservation of habitats, conservation of land races, folk varieties and cultivars, domesticated stocks and breeds of animals and microorganisms and chronicling of knowledge relating to biological diversity within their area of jurisdiction.

Functions of BMC:

  1. The main function of the BMC is to prepare People’s Biodiversity Register (PBR) in consultation with the local people. This register shall contain comprehensive information on availability and knowledge of local biological resources, the medicinal or any other use or any other traditional knowledge associated with them.
  2. Advise on any matter referred to it by the State Biodiversity Board or Authority for granting approval, to maintain data about the local ‘vaids’ and practitioners using the biological resources.
