Officially, India had 2,226 tigers as of 2014. 
According to Global Tiger Forum, said that India’s current capacity to host tigers ranged from 2,500-3,000 tigersMoreover, said another official, 25-35% of India’s tigers now lived outside protected reserves.
With dwindling core forest as well as the shrinking of tiger corridors (strips of land that allow tigers to move unfettered across diverse habitat), officials said there were several challenges — alongside the traditional challenges of poaching and man-animal conflict — to India’s success at tiger conservation.
