The National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA), Ministry of Environment and Forests on 15.10.2012 has notified guidelines for tourism in and around Tiger Reserves titled ‘National Tiger Conservation Authority (Normative Standards for Tourism activities and Project Tiger) Guidelines, 2012’. These guidelines, inter-alia, require States to notify the State-level Tourism and Ecotourism Strategy within one year of the date of notification of these guidelines. The guidelines have also recommended the identification and monitoring of ecologically sensitive areas surrounding tiger reserves to ensure the ecological integrity of corridor/buffer areas that will prevent encroachment.

The Ministry of Tourism, Government of India undertakes a series of promotional activities in the domestic and international markets with the objective of promoting tourism under its existing and ongoing Schemes namely ‘Domestic Promotion and Publicity Including Hospitality’ and ‘Overseas Promotion and Publicity including Marketing Development Assistance’ respectively.

The Ministry of Tourism, however, provides Central Financial Assistance (CFA) to all State Governments/UT Administrations for the various tourism projects identified in consultation with them, subject to availability of funds, inter-se priority and adherence to scheme guidelines. The projects which are not considered in a financial year, can be re-prioritised for CFA during next financial year in consultation with respective State Government/UT Administration. The exercise for 2012-13 has been completed for all States/UTs.
