    Solution:

    The above statement is False.
    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. Shipbuilding played a significant part in this downfall. In order to support the Royal Navy, the British government needed enormous boats. The British launched an assault on India's rural assets as the oak woodlands in England began to disappear. As a result of the massive movement of wood from India to England for construction and transportation, India's forests were drained.
    The correct statement would be that shipbuilding led to a decrease in the area of forest cover in the Indian subcontinent.
