Is bamboo grass?

Scientifically bamboo is not a tree but grass. But the Indian Forest Act, 1927 considered it a tree. Accordingly, cutting bamboo from outside forests and transporting it was made unlawful. In 2017 an amendment was made to Indian Forest Act, 1927 and bamboo has been removed from the category of tree. Now there is no prohibition on growing or cutting bamboo trees even outside the forests.
