Will the Minister of ENVIRONMENT, FOREST AND CLIMATE CHANGE be pleased to state:

(a)    whether Government intends to issue revised guidelines for declaration of Critical Wildlife Habitat in the Wildlife Sanctuaries and National Parks;
(b)    if so, the details thereof; and
(c)    if not, the reasons therefor?

MINISTER OF STATE (INDEPENDENT CHARGE) FOR ENVIRONMENT, FOREST AND CLIMATE CHANGE (SHRI ANIL MADHAV DAVE)

(a),(b)and (c)    The Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change had proposed framing of Rules for declaration of Critical Wildlife habitats in accordance with provisions of Section 2(b) of the Scheduled Tribes and Other Forest Dwellers (Recognition of Forest Rights) Act, 2006. The Ministry of Law and Justice has indicated that there is no clear provision under the said Act wherein the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change can frame Rules and that the Ministry may issue notification instead of framing rules. No final decision has been taken in this regard.
