31 January: Strong indian plan to save tigers. Will it be enough?

US$ 154 million, 8 more tiger reserves
In a major boost to its tiger conservation programme, the Government on Wednesday enhanced the budget for Project Tiger by more than four times and decided to the create eight new reserves in the country.
The Centre would spend Rs 600 crore (US$ 154 million) in the Eleventh Five-Year Plan on protecting the tiger whose numbers in India have gone down dramatically in the last few years, mainly because of poaching. In the Tenth Five-Year Plan, Project Tiger had a budget of about Rs 150 crore only.
Apart from continuing the ongoing programmes of Project Tiger, the enhanced outlay would support a number of new initiatives, including improved relocation and rehabilitation packages for people living in core tiger zones. The compensation package for these people has been increased from Rs 1 lakh per family to Rs 10 lakh per family.
“This is one of the most significant decisions in the history of tiger conservation in the country,” said Dr Rajesh Gopal, member secretary of the National Tiger Conservation Authority. “It will help in providing a fair deal to the people living in the core areas and make their relocation easier, thereby creating more areas for the tigers,” he said.
Eight existing national parks or sanctuaries have been elevated to the status of tiger reserves, which means that they would receive enhanced funding and greater support from the Government. Two of these new tiger reserves are in Tamil Nadu, and one each in Orissa, Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, Assam and Chhattisgarh.
The Government said the increased outlay would help create the right conditions for increasing the tiger population in the country. The number of tigers has fallen sharply in recent years and according to latest estimates, there are not more than 1300-1500 tigers left in the country.
The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) on Wednesday decided to set up eight new tiger reserves in India during the 11th Five Year Plan at an estimated cost of Rs 320 million.
Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram told reporters after the CCEA meeting that the new tiger reserves would be developed in Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Orissa, Karnataka, Assam and Madhya Pradesh.
It was one of the recommendations of the Tiger Task Force constituted by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, following the depletion of the tiger population in India.
Chidambaram said the CCEA in all approved Rs 600 crore (six billion) for taking up the preservation of tigers, rehabilitating the people from the core area and other safeguard related activities.
"Rs 508 crore (5.08 billion) out of Rs 600 crore (six billion) would be spent on the relocation of villages from the core area," he said.
