Government skipped procedure on Cattle trade ban

Section 38A under Prevention of Cruelty Act of 1960, mandates Union government to place any rule made by it before each House of Parliament for a total of 30 days. And any modification recommended by the houses need to be incorporated or else they stand void.

Lok Sabha secretariat in a response to RTI plea revealed that the Prevention of Cruelty to Animal (Regulation of Livestock Market) Rules of 2017, which bans the sale of cattle in livestock markets for the purpose of slaughter or animal sacrifice were not placed before the Parliament.

Concern:
By not placing it before Parliament government bypassed Parliament, suppressed the rules from the elected representatives of the people of the country and have threatened the parent Act.

An application was filed by a social activist in Supreme Court which observed that laying of a law before the Parliament is important. It is an exercise of Parliamentary control over the laws of the land.

Prevention of Cruelty to Animal (Regulation of Livestock Market) Rules of 2017:

The basic purpose of the Rule is to protect the animals from cruelty and not to regulate the existing trade in cattle for slaughter houses, to ensure welfare of the animals in the cattle market and to ensure the following:

· healthy animals are traded for agriculture purposes for the benefits of the farmers.
· adequate facilities for housing, feeding, feed storage area.
· water supply, water troughs, ramps, proper drainage.
· enclosures for sick animals, veterinary care.

The livestock markets are intended to become hubs for trade for animal for agriculture through this process and animal for slaughter will have to be bought from the farmers at the farms. The notified rules will remove the scope of illegal sale and smuggling of the cattle which is a major concern.
