NAGPUR: Realising that projects like roads, railways and powers lines are proving detrimental for tigers, the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) has directed all chief wildlife wardens (CWLWs) in tiger-ranging states to strongly comply with existing statutory provisions of the Wildlife Protection Act. The circular was issued on Wednesday.

Taking serious note of the recent reports in TOI, the NTCA on November 28 asked chief wildlife wardens to assert on Section 38(O)(1)(b) of the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972 which says: “Evaluate and assess various aspects of sustainable ecology and disallow any ecologically unsustainable and use such as, mining, industry and other projects within the tiger reserve.”
