Aug 30, 2012

The Supreme Court of India has asked the Government to prepare revised guidelines for tourism in core areas of tiger reserves, boosting the hope that tourist activities might be revived in the core zones.

A bench comprising justices AK Patnaik and Swatanter Kumar said, the fresh guidelines should be evolved within four weeks after consultations with States, all stake-holders, hotel associations affected by the ban, guides and tour operators.

The Supreme Court also extended the ban imposed by the court on tourist activities in the core areas of tiger reserves till 27th of next month. On July 24, the apex court had banned all tourism activities in the core areas of tiger reserves.
