Indian parliament’s upper house today passed a bill — The Compensatory Afforestation Fund Bill, 2016 — that will allow the government to use 400 billion rupees of accumulated funds for conservation, protection, improvement and expansion of forest and wildlife resources of the country.

The Bill was earlier approved by the lower house, Lok Sabha, in May 2016.
