Complete answer:
Corbett National Park is located in Uttarakhand. 'Palamau Tiger Reserve' is located in Jharkhand. 'Manas National Park' is located in Assam. 'Bandipur National Park' is located in Karnataka.

Additional Information: According to the recent data released by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on July 29, 2019, India’s tiger population has risen to 2,967 in 2018 within 12 years.
According to the most recent information, the biggest survey conducted by the government to map the Tiger Population in India to date was over 381,400 km of forested environments across 20 states.
Tiger Conservation in India is an exceptionally significant topic as the current number of tigers has been making into the endangered list at a developing pace. Although, there has been a mixed result from the tiger population graph. Despite the fact that a lot of activities like poaching, hunting have been occurring, different organizations along with the government have been trying their best to restore these sets of species.
So the correct answer is ‘Manas- Assam’.

-Sunabeda (Odisha),
-Ratapani (Madhya Pradesh)
-Orang (Assam)
-Guru Ghasidas (Chhattisgarh)
The respective state governments have been directed to send the proposal for announcing Suhelwa(Uttar Pradesh), Cauvery MM Hills (Karnataka), Mhadei(Goa), Srivilliputhur Grizzled Giant Squirrel (Tamil Nadu), and Dibang (Arunachal Pradesh) as tiger reserves.
