The government has granted Rs. 25 crore for relocating 181 Gujjar families from the core regions of the Corbett Tiger Reserve.

Over a period of time, a total of 400 families would be relocated to avoid man-animal conflicts in the reserve, a release by the Ministry of Environment and Forests said.

The government also planned to set up an Indira Gandhi Interpretation and Learning Centre near the reserve at a cost of Rs. 5 crore by the end of next year, it said.
