Members of the cell include Jammu divisional forest officer, assistant Commissioner (revenue), sub-divisional magistrate (south), joint director forest protection force, sub-divisional police officer and Jammu Development Authority (JDA) officials.
The decision to set up the cell was taken at a high-level inter-departmental coordination meeting of revenue, police, JDA and forest officials, chaired byPrincipal Chief Conservator Forests (PCCF) Suresh Chugh here on Saturday.
Chugh asked officials concerned to remove encroachment and submit a weekly progress report.
He also called upon forest and police departments to maintain the list of habitual land grabbers so that dossiers may be prepared and such encroachers may be dealt under relevant sections of the Public Safety Act (PSA), the spokesman said.
On cases of illegal registration of forest land, the spokesman said it was decided that revenue officials will carry out inquiry into such cases.
