Pobitira Wildlife Sanctuary UPSC NOTE

 Why in News

  • The Supreme Court on Wednesday froze the Assam government’s move to withdraw an almost 26-year-old notification constituting the Pobitora wildlife sanctuary, which hosts one of the largest rhino populations in the country.

  • The State government was not right in resolving to withdraw the notification dated March 17, 1998 notifying Pobitora wildlife sanctuary.

  • We direct that no further steps be taken with respect to the withdrawal of the notification dated March 17, 1998 by the State,” a Bench of Justices B.R. Gavai and Sandeep Mehta ordered.

  • The Assam Cabinet had on March 10 withdrawn the notification issued by the State Forest Department in 1998. 

  • The Cabinet decision of March 10 said the notification was issued unilaterally by the Forest department without consulting the Revenue Department or even the Chief Minister.
