In the pre-independence period, the forests within the Reserve were a part of the erstwhile Alwar State. This is where hunting was preserved for the royalty. After India gained independence, they were first notified as a reserve. Now hunting and shooting was turned unlawful. People cannot net, trap, snare, capture, or kill any kind of wild animals after the law forced in the year 1955.
It was in the year 1982, the primary notification was declared as a part of the core of National Park, which was issued in 1982. Final notification is pending in view of need of relocation of few villages from the Park.
Today’s Sariska Tiger Reserve was a hunting ground of the then Maharajas before 1955
