Park Rules

Still few things are not clear.
Entry fee is as before.
Even after paying the entry fee for vehicle they still wants every vehicle to pay Rs 1000/ for an year registration with forest department. This simply extortion but due to lack of courage local people dont come forward to oppose this legally.
First they said that only taxi permit vehicle will be allowed then they allow all till further order so position is not clear on this issue.
another controversial order is that only M.P. registration vehicle will be allowed to enter the park. On this I will say what is happening. Are we Talibaning the Parks that you can go and you cant go because you are not from here. Are we going to see this in future that visitors from outside of the state will be treated foreigner and will charged more.
Forest department should stick with entry fee and pollution control certificate of the vehicle.
So far No Tiger Show in Tala range. And neither in any other range either.
I will post more on this issue once we get more clear picture.

This is absolutely ridiculous. If you give me some address, I would like to write to authorities and give them a piece of my mind.

I just got back from Bandhavgarh. I heard that it was the gypsy union over there lobbying/forcing the park authorities to come up with such ridiculous fees.

Also, is there any official website where I can download the current version of park rules? Thanks.
