Centre Bans Sale of Cows For Slaughter In Animal Markets And Restricts Cattle Trade

Published on 26 May, 2017 at 6:09 pm By

The government has banned the sale of cows and buffaloes for slaughter at animal markets in the country.

The new notification issued allowed only farmland owners to trade at animal markets. The animals covered under this new notification include cows, buffaloes, bulls, bullocks, steers, heifers, calves and camels.

However, the ban is not nationwide but will merely crimp the supplies to the Rs.1,00,000 crore meat industry. The new changes will be implemented in the next three months and will involve a lot of paperwork.



 

The notification also introduced new rules like ban on setting of animal markets within 50 kms from the international border and 25 kms from the state borders. Movement of cattle outside the state would require prior permission from the authorities.

The notification also stated that young and unfit animals cannot be sold and that the animal markets must have the prescribed 30 norms for animal welfare.
