In regard to pasture, the Forest Officer appointed under section 5 or, failing such appointment, the Divisional Forest Officer must be consulted as to the number of cattle, the local pasture limjts, the season of pasture and the mode of exercise of the right, so that this may be as little injurious to the forest as possible. In regard to forest-produce, the same procedure is to be adopted and the Forest Officer to be consulted.

But the yield should be approximately estimated by the Forest Olhcer by inspection of the forest. It must be remembered, however, that such estimate must be pro portionately reduced if rights, such as grazing, tending to reduce the annual yield of timber, are recorded in the area set aside.for the exercise of the right to timber. In the case of rights to pasture, the position and area (which may be approximately stated) of the land over which the right is to be exercised should be recorded in column 7 of Table B. d) more
