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

(b)    whether it is also a fact that the plan has a road map to deal with poaching and illegal trade of animals and animal parts and management of tourism in wildlife areas;
(c)    whether 2017-2031 National Action Plan would be the third such plan; and
(d)    if so, the details thereof?
