State-wise List of Wetlands in India

 

 

 

 

 

State/year-wise list of identified wetlands under National Wetlands Conservation Programme

  

The State-wise list of 26 wetlands designated as Ramsar sites in India is given in Annexure-II. For conservation and management of identified wetlands including Ramsar sites in the country, the Centrally Sponsored Scheme of National Wetlands Conservation Programme (NWCP) was implemented till the year 2012-13. To have better synergy and to avoid overlap, the NWCP has been merged in February, 2013 with another scheme called National Lake Conservation Plan (NLCP) into a new integrated scheme of ‘National Plan for Conservation of Aquatic Eco-systems’ (NPCA) for holistic conservation of lakes and wetlands.
