Supreme Court asks TN govt to seal 11 resorts and hotels on Nilgiris elephant corridor

Supreme Court The Supreme Court today directed the Tamil Nadu government to seal or close down 11 resorts and hotels constructed on the elephant corridor of Nilgiris in violation of the law. A bench headed by Justice Madan B Lokur directed that resorts or hotels constructed without prior approval should be closed down within 48 hours. 

The bench, also comprising justices S Abdul Nazeer and Deepak Gupta had made it clear that no construction activity would be carried out in those areas and asked the collector of the Nilgiris area to file a report in this regard.
The apex court had stressed on the need to have elephant corridors across the country to reduce animal fatalities due to accidents and other reasons and asked the Centre to come up with a workable solution. 

The Centre had told the court that there were 27 "critical" elephant corridors in 22 states, but despite the top court's directions, 13 of those states had not responded to the communications sent by the Centre on the issue of elephant corridors.
