Cattle Commission seeks to ban cow slaughter

Press Trust of India

Posted: Aug 06, 2002 at 1802 hrs IST

The National Commission on Cattle (NCC) has recommended that the Centre bring in a law to prohibit slaughter of cows and its progeny, besides regulating and controlling their transport from one state to another for slaughter.

The prohibition on slaughter should be included as a constitutional mandate. Necessary schedules should be changed by bringing the subject into the central list, a press release, from Animal Welfare Board of India, headquartered in Chennai said on Tuesday.

The NCC report in four volumes was recently submitted to Prime Minister A.B. Vajpayee and Union Agriculture Minister Ajit Singh, by G.M. Lodha, acting chairman of the NCC. Lodha is also the chairman of the Animal Welfare Board.

The NCC has also recommended constitution of a permanent national cattle development commission at the national level with a fund of Rs 100 crore per year for preservation and development of cattle in India.
