  • 20/11/2015

Order of the National Green Tribunal (Central Zonal Bench, Bhopal) in the matter of Tribunal at its own motion vs. Ministry of Environment and Ors. dated 19/11/2015 regarding unsystematic growth coupled with human intervention into the habitat and areas of movement of the tigers and particularly the corridors leading to man-animal conflict with the worst case scenario of tigers losing their life in that event.

NGT in its Order noted that while the population of tiger is said to have increased substantially, the areas available for the sanctuaries and tiger reserves has considerably shrunk. Moreover, the corridors for inter-linking of tiger reserves for natural activities associated with the growth of tiger also need to be taken note of.
