India: Tour operators' groups says ecotourism ban in tiger preserves shouldn't have much impact on industry
GUWAHATI: The Tour Operators' Association of Assam (TOAA) on Saturday said the recent Supreme Court ban on tourism in the core areas of tiger reserves will not impact wildlife tourism in state's protected areas.
TOAA, a forum of 38 tour operators, argued that the core areas of the three tiger reserves in Assam were always out-of-bound for tourism activities and so the ban will not have a negative impact on the flow of wildlife enthusiasts in the state.
