(b)        if so, the details thereof along with the details of tiger reserves proposed to be covered thereunder;

(c)        whether NTCA has also decided to develop a standard operating procedure that would guide the reserves on setting up of such safaries and if so, the details thereof;

MINISTER OF STATE (INDEPENDENT CHARGE) FOR ENVIRONMENT, FOREST AND CLIMATE CHANGE (SHRI ANIL MADHAV DAVE)

(c) The National Tiger Conservation Authority has issued guidelines, namely “Guidelines to Establish Tiger Safari in Buffer and Fringe Areas of Tiger Reserves” in consultation with the Central Zoo Authority.  The same is available in public domain at www.projecttiger.nic.in.

(d)  Yes Sir.
