Do you know which parks come under the category of national parks? If you are unaware of this, then today through we will tell you about the popular national park in india.

Before giving you information about the National Park of India, it is important to know that due to the unlimited growth of human population, it has had a very bad effect on other creatures, their living and eating areas are almost over. That’s why it is very important that we control all the human population and save the forest so that our next generation also does not read these creatures only in the pages.

List of National Parks in India Map : Even before the Indian independence, sanctuaries had been created in the form of shooting blocks, game reserves or hunting reserves by the provisional governments or by the native rulers in their respective areas. In 1936, the first National Park in India was created and named as the Hailey National Park, now called the Corbett National Park, in Uttaranchal.

The sections 18 to 34 of the Indian Constitution deal with Sanctuaries, section 35 deals with National Parks and section 38 empowers the Central Government to declare areas as Sanctuaries or National Parks (Negi, S.S., 1991).

Indian wildlife sanctuary and national park

The term ‘National Park’ should denote an area:

  • which is, set aside for the protection and conservation of outstanding natural fauna, flora, geological formations and natural scenic;
  • in which hunting, killing or capturing of fauna, or deprivation of any wild animal of its habitat, or destruction and collection of flora, and weapons are all prohibited except for the improvement and a better management of wildlife therein, and on condition that these issues are handled by, or are under the control of, the park authorities;
  • where also, grazing [of any live-stock] shall not be permitted.

No alteration of the boundaries of a National Park shall be made except on the resolution passed by the legislature of the State (Wildlife Protection Society of India, 2003., Thane Riney, 1982).

Declaration of National Parks in India

Whenever it appears to the State Government that an area, whether within a Sanctuary or not, is, by reason of its ecological, faunal, floral, geomorphological or zoological association or importance, needed to be constituted as a National Park for the purpose of protecting, propagating or developing wild life therein or its environment, it may, by notification, declare its intention to constitute that area as a National Park. (Sub section (1) of section 35).

Total Biosphere Reserve in India/ Protected Area

The Government of India has established 18 Biosphere Protected Areas across the country . These biosphere reserves geographically protect the natural habitat of fauna and often serve to preserve one or more national parks and sanctuaries with buffer zones established for economic uses. Protection is given not only to the flora and fauna of the protected area, but also to the human communities living in these areas.

India designated the cold-desert of Himachal Pradesh as a biosphere reserve in 2009. On September 20, 2010, the Ministry of Environment and Forests designated Shaschalam Hills as the 17th Biosphere Reserve. Panna (Madhya Pradesh) was designated as the 18th on August 25, 2011.
