From IUCN Red List:
The Golden-capped Parakeet is listed as Near Threatened on the IUCN Red List and was last assessed in 2012 by BirdLife International. This species is thought to have a moderately small population which is suspected to be declining in some areas owing primarily to habitat loss. However, it seems to cope relatively well with the alteration of its habitat. It is consequently classified as Near Threatened.
