As a Minister he was assigned the portfolio of Tourism and Civil Aviation, later that of Health and Family Planning. He was a key figure in forming India's National Population Policy in 1976.
Dr Karan Singh has written a number of books on political science, philosophical essays, travelogues and poems in English. He has had extensive involvement with, amongst others, the Indian Board of Wildlife, and Project Tiger.
