The forest department will only use electric vehicles in tiger reserves

Forest department’s move aims to do away with use of petrol-diesel vehicles for tourists

The forest department will use only electric vehicles inside tiger reserves for the use of tourists, to promote a clean environment and put a check on vehicles run on petrol, diesel.

“At places where new vehicles are needed, electric vehicles will be bought on priority. In this case, importance should be given to the families displaced from the buffer zone and protected zone of the tiger project. Electric vehicles would be given 50% concession in entry fee,” the GR said.
