News : Soon Aadhaar Cards, 24X7 Helpline for Cows by Haryana Government
Haryana, India, July 6, 2016 -- Almost a year after ‘Haryana Gauvansh Sanrakshan and Gausamvardhan Act’ was passed, the state government has launched a 24-hour helpline (8284030455) to report cow related offences such as smuggling or slaughter.
The information that is provided will be conveyed to police officials, who would send special teams set up for the purpose of the area concerned.
According to an official spokesperson of Haryana government, special teams have been constituted in all districts of the state to check slaughter and smuggling of cows.
The development comes amid reports that cow vigilantes forced two suspected beef smugglers to eat cow dung and chant Gau Mata ki Jai and Jai Shri Ram.
The government recently entrusted IPS officer Bharti Arora the task to supervise and monitor the functioning of the team.
The official spokesperson said that 62 Non-Gazetted Officers (NGOs) and 224 Other Rank Police Personnel (ORP) have been posted in these police teams.
As many as 307 cases have been registered between January 1 and April 30, 2016, under Prevention of Cruelty to Animal Act 1960. Also, 85 cases have been registered under Punjab Prohibition of Cow Slaughter Act 1955. During this period, 191 cows have been rescued and 446 persons have been arrested under these Acts.
Let us tell you that the state government had enacted the Haryana Gauvansh Sanrakshan and Gausamvardhan Act which has a provision of imprisonment of up to 10 years in the case of cow slaughter.
Not only this, the animal husbandry department is planning to introduce Aadhaar-like identification cards which will display all relevant information about the breed such as milk yield and health details.
The main objective of this scheme is to double the country's milk production by 2020 and to help small and poor farmers that own 70 percent of the indigenous cow varieties to double their income.
