India plans to tag millions of cows to curb smuggling

Aadhar for cattle? Centre proposes 'Unique Identification Number' for each cow progeny

Certain recommendations in the report were given by a Committee headed by Joint Secretary of Home Ministry.

The committee suggests that care-taking should continue after the milking age. 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. Barren cows or bulls or low-yielding animals were sold to organised smugglers or abandoned on roads, from where they are captured and smuggled to the global borders.

The Centre's decision to extend Aadhaar-like unique identification (UID) to cattles to check cow smuggling has drawn the ire of the Opposition.

It said each animal would be tagged with a UIN, with proper records of identification details (age, breed, sex, lactation, height, body colour, horn type, tail switch, etc).

The BJP-led government also said in the report that it is considering a proposal to constitute "cow sanctuaries" in every state. "The existing shelter homes lack facility and human resources", it stated.

Almost 100,000 technicians have been armed with 50,000 tablets, the report said.

British PM Theresa May calls general election
Despite Corbyn's bravado, his party is demoralized and divided under his left-wing leadership and is expected to fare badly. But the country's current leader, Prime Minister Theresa May, won't be debating her case with the other party leaders.

Solicitor General Ranjit Kumar told the bench of Chief Justice Jagdish Singh Khehar and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud that each cow and its progeny across India would get a UIN so that their tracking could be done.

According to a report published in The Economics Times, the animal husbandry department had assigned technicians to affix a tag with a 12-digit unique identification number inside the ear of cows. The yellow-coloured tag is fixed in the centre of the earlobe.

The ambitious project will be concluded by the end of this year and comes at a cost of Rs 148 crore.
