The forest act completely disturbed the lives of all the pastoralists. Due to the forest protection act, they could no longer depend upon the forest for their daily needs. They could no longer get the grazing lands for their survival. As a result the cattle population decreased. Since they were highly dependent upon their cattle for livelihood,they suffered a lot. They were no longer allowed to enter certain areas without prior permission.They also suffered due to the large amount of revenue collection by the British.
