COIMBATORE: as part of an effort to minimize human events
In animal clashes in the area, the state government approved lakh, RS 11, to purchase and install travel wire alarm systems at the colonial border often facing elephant attacks in the Coimbatore district.
The department officials said the project is in its initial stages and will be completed in the next few days.
"We are exploring options to identify and choose the most appropriate system that can effectively contain such conflicts in the region.
A survey is also being conducted in the area to determine the installation point, "said V. Thirunavukkarasu, forest officer in the Coimbatore area.
Distribution was carried out as part of the state government's plan for Asian elephant plundering and its mitigation measures, which allocated a total of Rs 10.
Crore was approved by the National Forest Department.
Together with the estimates, the proposal was sent to the government.
According to government orders, the Coimbatore department was sanctioned by Rs11lakh for purchasing 10 trip wire alarm systems installed at designated locations.
After studying the elephant movement mode, the installation of the travel wire alarm system is proposed.

"Some private individuals install travel alarm systems on large lands across the country.
"We have not finalized the procurement of the alarm system," said an official from the Forest Department . ".
Additional allocations for the procurement and installation of two early elephant SMS warning systems for the Coimbatore Forest Division are also included at a cost of Rs 5 per fee.
"Some private suppliers have demonstrated their travel line alarm system, but the procurement has not yet been finalized," added Thirunavukkarasu . ".
