Corbett Tiger Reserve likely to be renamed Ramganga National Park

The Union ministry of environment, forests and climate change has asked Corbett Tiger Reserve officials to rename the Corbett Tiger Reserve (CTR) as Ramganga National Park (RNP). The Rāmgangā river flows from the Corbett Tiger Reserve and is known as the lifeline of the reserve.

Ashwini Kumar Choubey, minister of state for environment, forest and climate change (MOEFCC) has asked the CTR director to initiate the renaming process of the reserve during his visit to CTR on Sunday, a forest official said.

Choubey had visited CTR on Sunday to conclude the tiger safari organised for the protection of tigers held under Amrit Mahotsav. Speaking on the occasion at Dhangarhi museum, he told forest authorities that CTR should be renamed as RNP as it is a good name and related to Indian nature and landscape, an official said.
