Centre’s share in tiger project to go up

The centre has increased its share under the Project Tiger to 90 per cent from the current 50 per cent. This was stated in a letter by Union Minister of State for Environment & Forests Jayanthi Natarajan to Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi. According to the letter, the state’s share will be now only 10 per cent. This will also be applicable for the tiger reserves in the North East region.


Gogoi had in 2008 submitted a memorandum to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh proposing reduction of the state's share to the level of 10 per cent in the centrally sponsored scheme of Project Tiger.
