Union Minister of State for Environment and Forest Jairam Ramesh on Friday said the results of tiger census will be available by November.

“This time the tiger census is being conducted in a more scientific manner while earlier it was based on pugmarks. Hope the count will be over 1400,” he told reporters after the seventh convocation of the Indian Institute of Forest Management (IIFM) here.

On the controversy involving megastar Amitabh Bachchan sharing dais with Congress leaders, he refused to comment on the issue.
