Good news for tiger lovers! In a step towards making Bor Tiger Reserve inviolate, Forest Department has relocated families from Navargaon village to Khadki village (Hanuman Temple) situated on Nagpur-Wardha Road.

So now, the reserve, spread in a 138 sq km-area is free of human interference, and will now be fully reserved for tigers and wildlife.

Tourists can enjoy a jungle safari in around 20 per cent of the area.

According to a report published in The Hitavada, the government gave Rs 18 lakh per hectare to over 86 farmers having 218.75 hectares of agriculture land.
