would be pertinent to mention here that Govt. of India introduced Public Procurement Policy for Micro and Small Enterprises (MSEs) Order, 2012 but there are many items reserved as approved source, which based on animal slaughtering like BONE MEAL at serial No. 25. Health risks: In the 1990s, bone meal was identified as a vector for bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE, or "mad cow disease") among livestock. It is believed by some that bone meal produced in the 1970s from the corpses of sheep bearing scrapie caused BSE in cattle when it was fed to them, but the pathogen very rarely crosses species, so it is more likely to have spread from cow bone meal. Item No. 2: (b) Animal driven implements : There should be some specifications, prototype should be approved by the Animal Welfare Board of India - AWBI. 25. Bone Meal. 130. Glue. 148.

: 26714267 : diradm@kvic.gov.in It saddens me that a fun game like cricket causes so much cruelty to animals simply through the use of leather cricket balls. Animals who are slaughtered for their skin often endure extreme crowding and deprivation, castration without being given any pain relief and cruel transport and slaughter. In India, the source of much of the world's leather, cows are often marched to slaughter for days without food or water. When the cows collapse from exhaustion, workers often smear chilli peppers and tobacco in the animals' eyes and twist their tails until they break in an effort to keep the animals moving. At the slaughterhouse, animals are hacked at with dull knives, often in full view of one another. Leather production also wreaks havoc on the environment. Toxic chemicals are used to : process leather, and they pollute waterways and can sicken people who work at tanneries. The Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) is a statutory body established by an Act of Parliament (No. 61 of 1956, as amended by act no. 12 of 1987 and Act No.10 of 2006. In April 1957, it took over the work of former All India Khadi and Village Industries Board. KVIC approved many leather proposals under PMEGP scheme, which reflect promotion of cruelty on animals because slaughter houses are the basic source of raw materials, which is against the ethos of the Gandhian Ideology and philosophy. The UN affiliated OIPA in India campaigning Director Miss Sukanya Kadyan moving fast to get ban on cricket balls and leather articles. : 26 Jul 2012
