Kanha Tiger Reserve (KTR) is popularly known not only for tiger reserve but also for hard-ground barasingha or swamp deer (Cervus duavcelli brabnderi), only available here and in Sundarban throughout India. It has a huge collection of plants and birds and rich of several plants and trees. The forest has significant impact on the biodiversity, climate and economy of Madhya Pradesh state. KTR, since its inception in 1995 has become a very popular and remarkable tourist spot in India. Locate at 22°07'N and 80°26'E it has a comfortable weather during October to March for the tourists. We visited the Khatia village of KTR during October, 2018 and conducted a detail survey to study the sociological and economic status of the village and the ecology of the region for sustainable development. Most of the data were collected by the field survey and information were collected by interacting with the villagers and some government offices. We have also suggested some strategies for the proper socio-economic and ecological management towards sustainable development. However, further extensive study is very much necessary to study the impact of KTR on the climate and biodiversity of Madhya Pradesh state.
