India To Have Its National Butterfly

A panel of 50 butterfly enthusiasts is all set to elect the national butterfly for India. The election process has been started in September 2020 & well-known experts like Dr Krushnamegh Kunte & Issac Kehimkar will finalize 3 finalists from the hundreds & thousands of butterfly species. Another criterion for the selection will be that this national butterfly species should not already be a state butterfly. Interestingly 7 states of India already has its official butterfly.
