Introduction of African cheetah in India allowed by Supreme Court

The Supreme Court has allowed the Centre to introduce the African cheetah to a suitable habitat in India. Since the rare Indian cheetah is almost extinct in the country, the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) had filed an application seeking permission for the introduction of the African cheetah from Namibia. The apex court will monitor the project and the committee will submit its report every four months. The African cheetah will be introduced on an experimental basis in the best suitable habitat to see whether it can adapt to Indian conditions.
