Ranthambore National Park: Forest guards undutiful

The security and safety is handed over the forest guides of the Ranthambore National Park. Security and safety of the forest animals and tigers is explicitly in the hands of these forest guards. It has been notices recently that these guides are forgetting this primary duty of theirs behind the other non-primary activities like tourists visit and entertainment and satisfaction.

Forest guards touring with tourists:

Forest guards have been seen helping and also touring the park in the jungle safari with tourists, visitors and other VIPs.

Forest guides make use of the wireless provided to them by the forest department for transmitting information to track any movement of animals or any signal tracking and take visitors to sightseeing for animals and tigers.

Selling official photographs:

Forest guards also have expensive and sophisticated cameras, with the help of which they click photographs of tigers. Nature guides of the Ranthambore National Park have accused forest guards of clicking exquisite photographs of animals for official department work but not providing the same to the department and circulating them to hotels and/or tourists and visitors for a high price to make personal profits.

VIP visits:

If a VIP visits Ranthambore National Park, then a forest guard is sent along with the VIP's only on order of the forest officials. Such an order is given to render quality sightseeing to the VIP by utilising the skills of the forest guard and taking the VIP to the area where tourist or visitor entry is prohibited as entry to such an area causes a hindrance in the movement of forest animals.

Crossing zones: VIPs only

Tourist vehicles are allotted a particular zone for sightseeing and they are restricted from entering another zone leaving apart their own.

VIP vehicles as they are accompanied with forest guards are not restricted to cross zones and have free access to enter and sightsee any zone and its animals.

The forest guard can unlock every gate which leads to a new zone and can thus easily cross forest zones.
