  • India plans to tag millions of cows to curb smuggling

All cows, their calves, oxen and bulls in the country will be tagged with a tamper-proof Unique Identification Number (UIN) to stop their smuggling, the Centre told the Supreme Court on Monday.

A dozen measures were suggested by the BJP-led government in response to a plea filed by the Akhil Bharat Krishi Goseva Sangh seeking better protection for cows.

Further, the Centre, represented by Solicitor General Ranjit Kumar, has said that a committee headed by the Joint Secretary of the Home Ministry has been formed to find out ways to generate this UID for each cow in India.

The report also recommends special care for cattle beyond the age of milking and stresses on the launching of a scheme for distressed farmers. While the responsibility for care of abandoned animals will lie with the state governments, the Centre is planning shelter homes in each district to accommodate at least 500 abandoned cows.

While the Courts sort the issue of making Aadhaar mandatory, the central government today presented a report in which it extended Aadhaar to Cows.

Amid the ruckus caused by the cow vigilantes or "gau rakshaks", the central government on April 24 affirmed that every cow also should be given unique identification number just like the people across the country. The existing shelter homes lack facility and human resources.

The tag would allow technicians to use a tablet to maintain an online database of Unique Identification numbers for cows.

Further, reports claim that almost one lakh technicians have been armed with 50,000 tablets. The committee gave following recommendations...

It will be an excellent way to track the cattle as relevant details will be easily available.The recommendations have been made amidst reports of various incidents over cow-vigilantism from all over the contry. The yellow-coloured tag is fixed in the centre of the earlobe.

The tamper-proof tag just weighs eight grams so that it doesn't cause any inconvenience to the animal and its cost is Rs 8 per piece.
