Tiger tourism ban: Govt may seek more time

The apex court had earlier slammed the government for its re-think on the ban on tourism in core tiger areas.

New Delhi: The Centre is expected to tell the Supreme Court its plans on tiger tourism. The apex court had earlier slammed it for its re-think on the ban on tourism in core tiger areas. The Environmental Ministry may ask for more time.

The Centre's affidavit had virtually urged the apex court to review its July 24 interim order banning tourism in the core areas of the wild cats until final orders.

It claimed that the ban on tourism could result in not only loss of livelihood to several persons but also pose threat to wildlife and forests in the country.

"Representation from some states who own the land and have pointed out that they would like to give input and suggestions in this regard have been received in the context of the interim order issued by the Hon'ble Court to stop tourism in the core areas of tiger reserves," it said.
