Environment Ministry bans Cattle Slaughter Across India, Restrictions on Sale Too

“New Delhi: The Environment Ministry has banned cattle slaughter and introduced restrictions on the sale of cattle to prevent their killing”.

“A gazette notification, titled Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Regulation of Livestock Markets) Rules, 2017 by the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change states that no one can bring cattle to an animal market unless he or she has furnished a written declaration that the cattle will not be sold for the purpose of slaughter. Further, upon sale of cattle, the animal market committee will take an “undertaking” that the animals are for agricultural purposes and not for slaughter”.
