The National Tiger Conservation Authority has now imposed a five year ban on BBC and its journalists across all the tiger reserves in the country.



The controversy started when the film titled ‘One World: Killing for Conservation’ claimed that the Kaziranga forest guards have been given the permission to shoot-at-sight the poachers in the reserve. However, the truth is that the forest guards have been provided with certain immunity which is not absolute.

The Government has called the documentary “grossly erroneous” and said that it depicts Kaziranga’s rhino conservation efforts in poor light.

A memorandum was issued earlier this week saying that BBC had failed to submit the documentary to Ministry of Environment for the mandatory viewing. The NTCA has now asked all the wardens of tiger reserves across the country to disallow the filming by BBC inside the tiger reserves.
