Aadhaar like UID for Cows: Center tells SC

"Each district should have a shelter home of capacity of at least 500 abandoned animals". Enforcement agencies working in areas near the India-Bangladesh border must lay emphasis on intelligence and information on smuggling of animals so effective steps could be taken to prevent cattle smuggling, the Centre added.

In a report to the apex court on cow protection, the Centre has suggested that each cow and its progeny should get a "Unique Identification Number".

In a bid to provide better protection for cows and prohibit cattle smuggling along the India-Bangladesh border, the Centre on Monday told the Supreme Court that each cow and its progeny should be given a Unique Identification Number.

Blaming the government for not focusing on serious issues like malnourishment, All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen chief Asaduddin Owaisi said, "Controlling cow smuggling is fine, but the priorities of the government are completely misplaced". Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led central government have also affirmed that they will soon come out with schemes to facilitate the farmers in distress. State governments bordering Bangladesh may ban livestock markets within 20 km from the global border. "Existing shelter homes lack facility and human resources", it stated.

"The Union Agriculture Ministry has devised a tamper-proof identification of cattle using polyurethane tags with UIN".

"Each animal will have a unique number that will have details like age, breed, sex, height, colour, horn type and special marks", a senior officer from India's home ministry that prepared the recommendations told AFP.

Further, reports claim that almost one lakh technicians have been armed with 50,000 tablets.

As per the report, almost 100,000 technicians have been armed with 50,000 tablets and their mission is to affix a polyurethane tag on the ears of the cattle with a tag applicator.

The yellow-colored tag is fixed in the centre of the ear lobe.

The tamper-proof tag just weighs eight grams so that it doesn't cause any inconvenience to the animal and its cost is Rs 8 per piece.
