But may be slightly outside their "CONFIRMED" historic range map but if you consider unconfirmed then the whole subcontinent comes under Asiatic Lion Range map to reintroduce. May be that's why experts panel didn't select Nauradehi and other than that SO CALLED TIGER- LION FIGHT BY CRITICS (gujarat) can also be the reason. They not even leaving Kuno for Lion tiger fight fantasy.

Only Ghats (Western) are exception coz they are "continuous" moist tropical evergreen rain forests unlike Eastern Ghats.

The Total "Lion" map includes "Sri Lanka island" too in the subcontinent (it inc. Pleistocene leo subspecies and other lion species). Read Srilankan Lion thread for further details about one of the identified Pleistocene leo subspecies primitive to modern leo subspecies.

8 New villages got Displacement money in 38 villages linked in Relocation process

  • 12 Villages already displaced last year,
  • Displacement money reached on account of 8 new villages. So Now, total of 20 villages (8 now+ 12 last year) got the money to be displaced out of the Sanctuary,
  • Process is started in balance 18 villages too!!!
76 villages going to be displaced from the Nauradehi Sanctuary, of which 38 are "mainly" related to the displacement process. - The budget for the displacement of the village is 1600 crores of budget was allotted, this spending can increase over time!!!

Total 76 villages in the 1197 square kilometer area of the sanctuary are to be displaced out. Process began almost 8 years ago But, till December 2018 only 12 villages were displaced. Out of 76, 30 Villages are demanding relocation themselves by enrolling in applications.


The Central Government had allocated a budget of 1600 crores to spend on displaced people till March.

To speed up expenditure, the work of displacement paced up. In the last two months, the displacement of 8 villages has been made through the district collector by sending money to the accounts of people living in these 8 villages.

While 18 new villages have joined the displacement process. Of the 76 sanctuary, 38 villages have been linked to be displaced outside the reserve. Out of these 38, 12 villages are already  displaced out. 8 villages are being displaced and 18 villages are being surveyed for displacement and displacement started.

All 38 will be displaced out of Nauradehi till the end of this March.

1600 crores allotted but the expenditure may increase
Central government's Ministry of Forest and Environment had allocated a budget of 1600 crores for the displacement of the village in the month of December last year to the Nauradehi Sanctuary. To accelerate the displacement work, it was to use the maximum amount of money in this budget till March.

There was a budget to spend 533 crores on displacement every month till March. The Forest Department has displaced 8 villages in the last two months using this budget and the process of displacement of 18 villages is going on with this money. Forest officials claim that this money is being used more and the central government can also increase the time limit for spending this budget.


Encroaches of the forest in the last 5 years, will also be out
The Supreme Court has recently decided that in the last 5 years, a person who has settled in forests temporarily, should also be taken out of the forest reserves. Under the Forest Rights Act, 2006, tribes that are living in forests for the last three generations or for more than 75 years and are working for conservation and promotion of forests.

Under this act, there is a provision for leasing them, but under the guise of this act some other people started settling in the forests and applied for leases and land ownership documents. While hearing, the Supreme Court has ordered such people to be immediately expelled from the forest boundary. Because these people will not conserve and promote forests, but deforest by cutting trees by showing land ownership and leased documents and will start cultivation and crop harvesting Angry .
-----------------------------------------------
These village had been displaced:-

Rampura, Bijini, Bardapani, Chhoti Pappala, Bada Pappala, Bhadra, Kusvari, Nauradehi, Tara, Tindani, Lagra and Kusami.
----------------------------------------------
Efforts will be to increase the budget
The villages outside of the border of the Naurdehi Sanctuary. The displacement process has started in more and more villages. I don't think the rest of villages don't object to get displaced outside the reserve. A budget of 1600 crores to spend on the displaced people till March was received from the center. Efforts are being made to increase its time limit. Expectation is also that we can  increase the amount of money spent.

Chital Deer shifted to Nauradehi Reserve from Pench Reserve (again Lol )

*This image is copyright of its original author

Chhindwara, Madhya Pradesh
@BorneanTiger

Preparing to reduce the number of chital (Over Population) in the Pench park, up to five hundred were shifted so far

  The preparations for sending more than three thousand chital to the Nauradehi Sanctuary in the Sagar district from the Pench Tiger Reserve have begun. Five hundred cheetahs have been sent in the beginning. This will increase the number of herbivores before bringing CHEETAHS in Nauradehi and their number in the Pench can also be reduced.

According to departmental information, Chital has to be caught and relocated in "herds" altogether without getting individually separated. There are about ten to twelve cheetals in one herd. Nearly 500 to 600 cheetals have already reached Nauradehi Sanctuary from the Pench Tiger Reserve, but they are currently kept in safe enclosure in Nauradehi.
.... --------------

Cheetal is a favorite prey of Cheetah (Good rhyming  Lol )

According to the forest department, the tiger needs around 40 kg of meat in one day, so he always hunts large animals, but the first choice of Cheetah is the animal species like Chital.

In Africa, he preys on Gazelles and Impala but he used to prey primarily on Blackbucks, Chinakara and Chital in India. When he gets enough chital in the Nauradehi Sanctuary, he will not go out of the area.

Preparations are being made to bring it CHEETAH to Nauradehi. Chital (axis axis) Fawn births occur two times a year, forest department officials said and their growth rate is also fast, which is the reason for their quick increase in numbers or population. According to the management of Pench Park, it is to be sent 3000 chital out of Pench. Its preparations are underway.

(Cheetal are the mice/humans/roaches of the deer world, they breed ****ing quick like us humans Sad )

Here's NEWS OF THE DECADE !!! Lol @smedz @Rishi (balance is those gir lionsAngry )

Impossible came Possible...

India will get 30 cheetahs from South Africa and Namibia, in Madhya Pradesh's Nauradehi WLS 

*This image is copyright of its original author


IUCN and Supreme Court granted the permission of Cheetah reintroduction to Nauradehi, the area of 400 sq km grassland is prepared.

In the Sagar district of Madhya Pradesh, preparations are being made to set up 30 CHEETAHS the Nauradehi Sanctuary. These cheetahs are being procured from South Africa and Namibia.

This project will cost more than 260 crores !!!

The International Union of Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the National Board of Wildlife and the Supreme Court, have authorized the cheetah Reintroduction Project to India.

It is known that Cheetahs have been extinct in India long ago, hence the cheetahs are being renewed here.

For the last four months, the 15-member committee of the Nauradehi Sanctuary is working for it. It includes State Forest Research Institute, Jabalpur Veterinary Medical College and WildLife Scientists.

They studied the impact of climate change and biodiversity in the Nauradehi Sanctuary. The team has found in the study that the Nauradehi Sanctuary is very good for cheetahs.

Preparations in 500 sq km

Preparations are being made for the cheetahs in the 500 sq km area of the sanctuary. Of this, 400 sq km area grasslands area is now ready and functional.

A large number of wild herbivores have been identified here in these grasslands so that the cheetahs get enough prey for hunting.

Water resources are being provided and improved significantly.

The four drone cameras, trap cameras, ex-soldiers, foresters, rangers and sanctuary's forest department staff team will be there for safety and vigilance.

The sanctuary is ready

The Nauradehi Sanctuary is fully prepared for the cheetahs. The scientific team is giving their approval through their research studies. Permission has been received from both the countries different entities and organizations for safe and smooth relocation. Formalities have completed in South Africa and Namibia. Cheetahs will be brought as soon as the date is decided from the center level.

-Dr. Ankur Awadhiya, District Forest Officer, Nauradehi Sanctuary

Salute to MP and Congress, made things as expected. How's the Josh? High Sir!!!

The only extinct cat or Large mammal of India is reborn clearing the debt. Lol

Cheetahs from Africa to India to repopulate the Nauradehi Wildlife Sanctuary

Green light for the reintroduction of cheetahs from South Africa and Namibia into Madhya Pradesh (@smedz)

[March 12, 2019]

*This image is copyright of its original author

A rare Photo of Asian Cheetah in 20th Century India.

Until the 20th century, the Asian cheetah ( Acinonyx jubatus venaticus ) was widespread in much of southern Asia, from the Arabian peninsula to India, and is currently one of the rarest carnivores on the planet, with less than 50 individuals surviving only in the highlands of central Iran.

In India the last sighting of a live cheetah dates back to 1951. Now project that has been talked about for years seems destined to soon become reality in the Nauradehi Wildlife Sanctuary according to Project Cheetah by NDA govt (Congress Lol ), in the Sagar district, which with its 1,197 km2 of area is the largest protected natural area of Madhya Pradesh, a state in central India, which is considered the most suitable place to reintroduce cheetah into the subcontinent.

After the recent environmental interventions, the area would be able to sustain and restoration without problems as a population of about 50 of these very fast felines will be thriving there.

The project plans to reintroduce 30 cheetahs that will be imported from Namibia and South Africa on a date yet to be established (this month or next month).

The authorities of Madhya Pradesh point out that "The choice to introduce African cheetahs is due to the impossibility of obtaining specimens from Iran".

But the green light for the operation came from the IUCN, the National Board of Wildlife (NBW) and the Supreme Court of India, and only the completion of a formality in South Africa and Namibia is underway and then the cheetahs will be captured and transferred to India.

For four months a committee of 15 researchers from the Nauradehi Wildlife Sanctuary - which includes the State Forest Research Institute of Madhya Pradesh, the Jabalpur Veterinary Medical College and wildlife scientists - has been working on this, evaluating the impact and changes shown on climate and biodiversity in the Sanctuary after Cheetah extinction.

The team confirms that "The Nauradehi sanctuary is great for cheetahs which can restore the Nauradehi Environment".

The area destined to host the felines extends over 500 km2 and of these 400 km2 are Prairies or Pampas like Tropical grasslands and Savanna in good part restored.

In addition, several areas rich in wildlife have been identified, so that the cheetahs have enough prey to hunt. The area also contains water resources necessary to sustain prey and predator. The team of scientists, backed by former or ex- soldiers, will monitor the cheetahs with cameras traps, drones.

This is great! I honestly thought this would never happen, but here we are! With the return of the cheetah, the ecosystem will be healthier, and some animals will definitely be in the need for speed.
