This paper analyses the status of CPRs in Theni district over the period of 1996 to 2012 by using secondary data which are obtained from statistical handbook of the Theni district of Tamil Nadu. The result reveals that the areas under the CPRs have declined in the study district in general and the study village in particular and there is no large changes in the forest cover area. The Private Property Resources (PPRs) have increased continuously partly due to encroachments of CPRs by the private individuals and partly by developmental programmes of the state government.
