Supreme Court issues notice to Centre on order banning cattle trade for slaughter

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Thursday sent a notice to the Center on how a difficult notice prohibits the sale and purchase of livestock at animal markets for the massacre.

The top court also asked the government to file its response within two weeks, and the messages will be reviewed on July 1.

The controversial notification center prohibits the sale and purchase of farm animal markets for the massacre was challenged before the Supreme Court.

The petitioner argued that the provisions of the notification were unconstitutional because they violated fundamental rights, including freedom of conscience and religion and the right to life.

On the grounds said that the government notice issued last month was “against the freedom of religious practice to sacrifice animals” and prohibit the slaughter of animals for food violates the right to food, to life the Personal and private freedom guaranteed to citizens under the Constitution.

He said states such as Kerala, West Bengal, Tripura and Karnataka have said they will not implement the Center’s ban as this would have an impact on the livelihoods of the people involved in this business.

A notice issued by the Environment Ministry of the Union of 23 May prohibits the sale or purchase of livestock in the cattle markets for the massacre with the word “cattle” covering bulls, bulls, cows, buffaloes, Oxen, calves, calves, and camels.

The order essentially means that the meat supply of these animals depends to a large extent on the direct transactions between farmers and abattoirs registered on the farm. Leaders of the meat industry say such operations do not currently account for 10 percent of total beef buffalo production.

The new rules, known as the Regulations for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Cattle Market Regulations) stipulate that sellers must submit a signed statement that the cattle were not sold for slaughter. Buyers of cattle should “not sell the animal to a slaughtering goal.”

The notification specifying the establishment of an animal market committee should ensure that the statement includes the name and address of the owner of the animal and a copy of the identity of the photo. Cattle identification data should also be mentioned.

The panel must keep each report for six months and produce an inspector, if necessary during this period.

The Market Committee is also necessary for the commitment to the buyer that the animals were purchased for agricultural purposes and not for massacre. Make sure the buyer is a farmer and asked to see the entry of relevant documents.

The buyer must also state that the animal would not be sold for six months from the date of purchase.

The new rules prohibit animal markets within 25 km from any state border and 50 km from any international border.
