Sajjangarh Biological Park

In a significant transformation facilitated by financial assistance from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), the Sajjangarh Biological Park in Udaipur has benefitted in various development works, eliminating the need for government aid. 

Under the JICA initiative, the Rajasthan Forest Department received Rs 23.48 crores in 2008-09 for development projects aimed at enhancing the Biological Park's infrastructure. Acting through the Rajasthan State Road Development Corporation (RSRDC), the department successfully executed various projects within the Sajjangarh Century.

The completion of these projects facilitated the expansion of tourist facilities within the Biological Park, subsequently attracting a surge in tourist arrivals. This influx of visitors has not only increased government revenue but has also led to increased income for the Zoo Trust.

Local individuals are also finding employment opportunities within the biological park. Specifically, 25 individuals have been employed for regular duties within the park under the supervision of the Eco Development Committee.

A post-evaluation team from JICA recently visited Sajjangarh to assess the impact of their assistance on the Biological Park. The team, comprising Indian Forest Officer Sanjay Bhadu, consultant Narendra Sharma, and consultant Seema from Japan, expressed satisfaction with the outcomes achieved through Japanese aid. 

Deputy Conservator Forest, Devendra Kumar Tiwari hailed the Sajjangarh Biological Park as a prime example of self-sustainable development, emphasizing the park's ability to progress without reliance on government assistance. Tiwari announced that the park's next project, the Lion Safari, would be funded using the revenue generated.
