Two Hundred and Ninety-third report on Forest Fires and its Effect on Environment, Forests, Bio-diversity and Wildlife and remedial/preventive measures

The Department-related Parliamentary Standing Committee on Science & Technology, Environment & Forests, present this Two Hundred and Ninety-third Report on “Forest Fires and its Effect on Environment, Forests, Bio-diversity and Wildlife and remedial/preventive measures”. Forest fires had seldom been as rampant as they were in the Himalayan States this year, affecting the fragile ecosystem of these States and destroying invaluable forest resources and causing extensive damage to biodiversity including wildlife sanctuaries. In view of the enormity of the forest fires this year in the Himalayan States of the country, resulting in loss of lives and extensive damage to the flora and fauna, the Department-related Parliamentary Standing Committee on Science & Technology, Environment & Forests decided to take up the subject titled 'Forest Fires and its effect on environment, forests, bio-diversity and wildlife and remedial/preventive measures’ for examination and report.
