Fine of Rs 5,100 to befall upon those who abandon milch cows.
CHANDIGARH: Those abandoning milch cows in Haryana will have to pay a fine of Rs 5,100, senior officials said on Monday.

Haryana Gau Seva Aayog Chairman Bhani Ram Mangla said: "For this purpose, a mobile application is being prepared with the assistance of information technology cell in the state, which will reveal information about the location of the animal on the basis of a tag number."

He said that as per the government decision, Gau Seva Kendras will be established in villages for fostering cows, for which government will give financial assistance.

"Registration of these centres will be mandatory and a committee of learned persons set up for their functioning. The Aayog will give a lump sum amount of Rs 5,000 per cow annually," he said.

Apart from this, 90 per cent grant will be given on equipment used for making products like soaps, lamps, and incense from cow dung and urine, Mangla added.

After its proposal to make floor cleaners using cow urine, the Uttar Pradesh government has decided to give a push to the use of cow urine in preparing medicines. There are eight Ayurvedic medical colleges in the state in Banda, Jhansi, Muzaffarnagar, Allahabad, Varanasi, Bareilly, Lucknow and Pilibhit.

States such as Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, and Madhya Pradesh have introduced countless welfare schemes for the betterment of bovines, some of which include hostels, insurance and even unique identity numbers.

Recently, Member of Parliament Subramanian Swamy buckled under pressure from his fellow lawmakers and withdrew a bill to ban cow slaughter, a bill that demanded a mandatory death penalty for Indians accused of killing the animals that some in India consider sacred.

Political opponents and critics have claimed that the current dispensations in several states have been rolling out more schemes for the welfare of bovines than they have for the welfare of the state’s women and children.
