    Solution:

    The above statement is True.
    The Indian subcontinent's forest cover decreased from 108.6 million hectares to 98.9 million hectares between 1880 and 1920, a 9.7 million hectare loss. Commercial farming played a significant part in this downfall.
    Commercial crops like cotton, sugar, wheat, and jute were all encouraged by the British in a legal manner. The land was made available for commercial farming after vast tracts of forests were cleared.
