New Delhi: Supreme Court seeking helps of Monkey scarers following growing menace of Monkeys at Judge’s bungalows in Delhi.
Supreme Court has issued a notice asking housekeeping agencies to submit tenders for providing manpower to tackle the issue of monkeys at judges' bungalows in New Delhi.

Now Apex Court has issued a statement calling for tenders for the recruitment of ‘monkey-scarers’ as and when required was issued by the SC. Reputed housekeeping agencies located in Delhi and NCR have been asked for providing monkey-scaring services at ‘lowest/best’ rates.
Monkey scarers will be deployed at close to 35 to 40 government bungalows and guest-houses located within a radius of 3 to 4 kilometres from the Supreme Court of India. The tenderers are required to send their tenders along with a demand draft of Rs 10,000/- in favour of the Registrar of the Supreme Court of India, the statement said.
Monkey scarers use various techniques to scare away monkeys from residential areas. They scare the monkeys by mimicking the sound of Langurs and use sticks and rubber bullets. Monkey scarers were earlier deployed around the parliament also, OpIndia report says.
Far from as astonishing as it sounds, the growing attacks by monkeys in New Delhi is indeed a serious deal. People residing in high foliage areas – especially in the neighbourhoods of Vasant Kunj, Saket, Chhatarpur and Sainik Farms live threatened lives concerning the attacks by monkeys. Instances have happened when a barrage of monkeys have ransacked entire homes after finding an ‘open’ window of opportunity, OpIndia reported.
Delhi, which is characterised by a huge monkey population faces simian attacks, especially in the Summers when about 20,000 monkeys kept in the nearby Asola Bhatti wildlife sanctuary flee and raid the nearby city areas in search of food and water. This has resulted in a serious problem of monkeys raiding homes, barging into local gardens, causing damage and often wounding citizens,reported in OpIndia.
