The dense Jungles of the Jim Corbett National Park were the private land of the local rulers as the princely state of Tehri Garhwal before the years 1815-20 of the British Rule. The jungles were uninhabited to make the area less unprotected to Rohilla attackers. The Maha Raja of Tehri authoritatively surrendered a division of his princely state to the East India Company in return for their support in ousting the Gurkhas from his state. Even if the actuality that the rights had passed into the British hands, the government compensated modest or no concern for the protection of the park. The single aim was to develop natural resources and take out as many profits as possible from the jungle.

In the year 1858, Major Ramsay drew up the first extensive conservation plan to shield the nature and forest of Corbett Park. He makes certain that his guiding principle is followed peremptorily and, after a few decades the situation of the jungle began to ameliorate. During 1861-62, farming was ousted in the lower Patli-doon valley. Farm animal's huts were put away and domestic animals have driven away from the forest. A customary staff of workers was formed to battle with jungle fire and protect the forest from the unlawful cutting of trees. Permits were issued for hardwood and count of trees was undertaken. In 1868, the Forest division implicit accountability for the forests and in 1879 this forest declared as reserved forest under the forest
