The crusade against illegal settlers in the globally famed Namdapha National Park continues in Arunachal Pradesh. The State’s Forest Department is also effectively carrying out with the eviction drive in the park despite some cases of resettlement.

Speaking to Northeast Live, Field Director of Namdapha National Park and Tiger Reserve, Aduk Paron informed that villages inside the park which are recognized by the Government of India will be relocated in suitable locations with proper rehabilitation packages.

It needs to be mentioned here that the State Government has decided to project Namdapha National Park and Tiger Reserve in a big way at the international level for its immense tourism potential.

Encroachments by illegal settlers inside the national park have always been a major area of concern for the park authorities. However with strict instructions from Chief Minister Pema Khandu, the forest department with assistance from the civil administration and security forces is going all out to make the park totally free from encroachment.

Namdapha is rich in its flora and fauna and attracts a lot of tourists every year. Apart from the Royal Bengal Tiger, leopards, clouded leopard and snow leopard has been recorded in the national park.
