28 Nov 2016
Rajya Sabha


1324.    SHRI LAL SINH VADODIA:
Will the Minister of ENVIRONMENT, FOREST AND CLIMATE CHANGE be pleased to state:

(a)    whether it is a fact that Government is seriously considering to impose harsh punishment and heavy fines on people hunting forest animals;
(b)    if so, whether Government has taken any steps so far in this regard; and
(c)    if so, the details thereof and 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 Wild Life (Protection) Act, 1972 provides for stringent punishment for hunting of wild animals. However, as the scope of protection has changed over the years since the Act has been enacted, a review of the Wild Life (Protection) Act, 1972 is being undertaken in the Ministry.
