Primary reason the forest were saved because most rural folks moved to the city, we had 70% pop living rural in 80s and it will be just 20% in 2040. Lack of development in rural zones and poverty had allowed forest to regrow and strong laws which protect forest helped too.

It’s a patch of 50×50 km, small enough to be a rounding error given India’s size.
