Inspection Report and status of Live Stock and implementation of Union & State Acts & Rules
Karnataka State is blessed with number of famous cow breeds like Amrutmahal, Deveni, Kangyam Haalidkar, Krishnavally, Malanad Gidda, Khillar etc famous for high quality milk and draught power. As per Live Stock Census 2007, there were Cattle 10,502,520 & Buffaloes 4,326,980.making Karnataka 10th State in livestock and contributing app.3% to our state GDP. A great source of Employment and Rural Development Karnataka is one of the leading States in milk production producing 32,00,000 Kg per day. Currently the State ranks second in milk production in the country. The Co-operative societies model has been very successful in the State. The Karnataka Milk Federation (KMF) is the apex body of the milk co-operative societies procuring millions of Liter every day. There are 13 district level co-operative union with 11,036 primary milk co-operative societies. If properly developed, it can be number one State and can provide employment to millions and a vital tool in Rural development. This app 15 million Cattle heards not only produce Milk BUT give birth to app. 5. million Calfs every year. It is directly related with our increasing Milk Production. We have app. average 150 Ltr Milk per cattle per lactation. That means for every 150 Ltr Milk we get one Cow (He or She) or Buffalo(He or She. And now it is a matter of simple airthmatic that how many Cattle births are taking in our State and where this increase is going. So the Report...............................

STATUS OF COW & BFFALO STOCK Statement of Cow & Buffalo on the basis of Live Stock Census-2007
As per the information geathered during visit to several Districts, there is certain short fall of 1525% during 2007-8 to 2012-13. Instead of any growth. Following details will confirm that more than 50 Lakh Cow, Calf & Buffalo are illegally transported to State & Inter State Slaughter houses every year
As per Live Stock Sample Survey State was possessing below 1 year female 18.99Lakhs 1 to 3 years 15.14 lakhs = 34.14. Lakhs and Male 1 year 8.04 & 1 to 3 years5.62 = 13.66 lakhs This figure shows the quantum of new Birth every year and if we take birth of male and female equal than Female are 34.13 lakhs where as Male are only 13.66 lakhs. We can presume that app. 21 Lakh male Calveshas been sent to Slaughter houses even before their 3 year age for calf beef (Veil) and Calf leather. Same infrence can be taken that in spite of recorded births which shall be app. 55 lakhs every year, no increase is visible in live Stock. This fact can be proved with Datas of Milk production. It is universal truth that milk production is based on cattle birth. With out Calve birth a Cow will not give milk. State Milk production is increasing leap and bounds. KMF alone is procuring app. 54 Lakh Litre Milk per day. As per National Data in 2010-11 State produced 51,14,000 MT of Milk and average milk yeild per Cow or buffalo is app 2.4 Liter per day and per lactation of app 254 days it is app.365 Ltr or say a Calf birth is required for each 610 Kgs of milk i.e app.83.83 Lakh Calves in 18 months or say 55.89 Lakh per year.

5 Our finding clear and verify that app. 50 Lakh Cow, Calves & Buffalo are going to Slaughter houses in the State and Out side the State. This large number of Cow Calves and Buffalos are purchsed and 90% at APMC Yards @ App. RS.5,000 per cattle or say RS. 2,500 Crore and transported to Kerala, Goa, Andhra Pradesh, Tamilnadu & Maharashtra. This livestock generate Beef 10,00,000 MT Beef rate States are above RS.275/- per Kg feteches App. RS.27,500 Crore Bone 1,00,000 MT. @ RS. 30/- per Kg 300 Crore Animal Fat 30,000 MT @ RS.100/-per Kg 300 Crore Leather 50,00,000 @ RS.3,000/-.perPc1,500 Crore Blood 60,000 KL @ RS.50/- per Ltr 300 Crore

Total RS.29,900 Crore

This Excess amount of app RS. 27,500 Crore is unchecked, untaxed, and not providing any revenue rather State is spending huge tax payer amount in Slaughter house opening, maintenance and in public hospitals in citizen treatment. Meat eaters are deprived of cheap and qualitative Beef & Meet due to illegal Inter State Transportation Breeders and Farmers are deprived of Quality and strudy Cattle in compitition to Slaughter and inter state demand. As per information Around 10% of amount is spent as bribe to different concerned Departments. State endevour of high milk production by spending huge subsidy, is hampering due to illegal Cattle transportation. Adultrated Milk made from Urea & Detergent is playing with the health of next generation Farmers are comitting Suside due to increased cost of Cultivation and fertilizer.

Inspection Report
Comission was receiving information from different parts of the State about illegal, unhygenic cruel transportation of Cattle particularly to adjoining States resulting in reduction of Live Stock . So a decesion was taken that all the Districts shall be inspected and problem be discussed with different Districts administration. I started Tour and main concentration was on border Districts so till date following District are visited 1. 2. 3. 4. Chamarajanagar Kudagu Mysore Hassan 5. 6. 7. 8. Uttar Kanada Udupi Shimoga Dharwad 9. Bagalkot 10. Bijapur 11. Bidar 12. Gulbarga

I requested respected Dy. Commissioners to arrange meeting in their respective offices with CEO Zilla Panchayat, Dy.Director Animal Husbandry & his officials, Asst/ Dy. Director APMC, Superintendent of Police, RTO, Dy. Conservator of Forest, Municipal Commissioner , Members od District SPCA, Representatitives of Animal Welfare Organisations. In many districts, I visited inter state Borders, APMC Yards, Meat Markets, Slaughter places, RTO Check posts, Gaushala & Pinjrapoles etc to have fair idea. I am submiting this Report to Government of Karnataka and all concerned officials for eye opening & to save our State from drastic results.For better implementation, Department wise Report is here as under:

Agro Produce Marketing Department (APMC) is a revenue earning department of our State. It functions under the provisions of Karnataka APMC (Regulation) Act. 1966. Cattle is item NO.1 in Sched ule A. Sale and Purchase of Cattle is regulated as per the provisions applicable on other Scheduled commodities We visited number of APMC Yards and saw thousands of Cattle coming for marketing. We saw Scores of Trucks for loading and transporting these cattle to Slaughter houses inside and out side the State. We enquired with many Drivers and they also confirmed. We have drawn list of Trucks, regularly commiting the henious crime. We tried to see the records and found that in spite of heavy Cattle transection, Collection of Fee is meger.

6 We saw the presence of Dalali Cattle brokers and public report says that app. 80% cattle are purchased by them, 5-8% by breeders and FARMERS AND only 10-12% return untransected. As these Dalals (Butchers agents) purchase in terms of cattle weight, it deprive our Breeders and Farmers of livestock at resonable price. Certainly, they can not compete these Dalali All above transctions are in violation of APMC ACT & also attracts provisions of Karnataka Prevention of Cow Slaughter & Cattle Preservation Act, 1964, Karnataka Motor Vehicle Rules etc. The matter was raised in all respective meetings and APMC officials shown total ignorance of APMC Rules applicable on Cattle transections In total: we saw utter violation of All Acts and Rules, Loss of Revenue, non recording of entry and transection at all APMCs visited. A fair estimate is that app. 1,20,000 Cattle are transected every week in different APMC Yards but reported only 2-3,000 every week. A loss of app. RS.10-15 million to our Exchequer. REQUEST to Director A.P.M.C. to intervene in the matter, issue necessary Directions, renew Directions as issued by Director APMC in 1999. Take strong action against irring officials.

REPORT ON ANIMAL HUSBANDRY DEPARTMENT Animal Husbandry Department is serving State Live Stock. District Dy. Director is Ex officio
Member Secretary of District SPCA where CEO Zilla Panchayat is Chairman, SP is Vice Chairman & RTO, Municipal Commissioner, DFO etc are members. All Dy. Directors, Taluq Asst. Directors, Vet. Officers are named as Competent Authorities in above ACT. Department is managing State Government Schemes & Grants and also responsible for monitoring Transportation, Anti & Post Maurtem of Slaughtering animals & Carcass. We found AH&VS Asst. Directors involved is supporting illegal transportation by issuing Animal Health Certificates. There is no system or control on issuance nor any reporting or record maintanance at any level. Even the Certificates are issued on non prescribed formate in violation of Union Governments PCA Act, 1960 and in spite of clear direction that no certificate can be issued for more than 6 animals in a vehicle, we found the Certificates issued for 20-25 animals. Presence of AH&VS officials are not seen in any APMC Yard on the day of transections Anti Mautem or Post Mortum is not seen in slaughter places, where is the question of monitoring even legal slaughter houses. Carcas at Meat Shops seen un Checked and un stamped, vigarusly playing with the health & hygine of meat consumer. We found the forged, Scanned Certificates being in use by illegal criminal transporters a matter of grave concern. We found non co operation of other departments even if AHVS officials inform or request to book the case. As example Gulbarga APMC PS refused to book the complaint even after VO brought seized Cattle to PS.


We visited many State Borders and found that Inter State Borders are unchecked and with out any Inter State Check Posts particularly in Belgaum, Dharwad, Uttar Kanada, Bagalkot, Bidar,Gulbarga etc districts. These Districts dont have any RTO, Police, Exise, APMC, Commercial Tax etc Checkposts and resuting in illegal transportation particularly in case of Cattle and Carcass. In District meetings we conversed with respective Transport officers and found the Crime booking under above Rules are totally non existing. As per fair estimate, app. 200 thousand Trucks travel on State Roads carrying Cattle & / or Carcass in violation of State & Union Acts & Rules. Where even Check posts are seen BUT found totally ineffective. Regular offenders are unchecked in spite of Cases booked in different Courts. We are producing List of Regular offending Transporters in Mysore, Chamarajanagar, Hassan etc areas for immediate action.

REPORT ON FOREST DEPARTMENT Provisions of Karnataka forest Act, 1963 Indian Forest Act, & Indian Wildlife Protection Act. 1972
Provisions of under Acts & Rules prohibit transportation, grazing and all other cattle related activities. Most of inter state roads are through Forest areas with strong presentation of Forest officials and Forest Hand Posts. Even as per Honble Supereme Court directions, all these road shall be closed in night hours and to be recorded and monitored by CC Camera recordings. We visited number of Forest areas on ways to Kerala, Goa, Maharshtra & Andhra Predesh. But, we found total ignorance and violation of Forest Acts and Rules apart from other Acts. We have been reported the unauthorized opening of Roads & Hand posts in Night to help illegal transportation The matter was discussed with Conservator / Director Tiger Project and different Dy. Con. Forest with out any positive result. Forest officials can play major ROLE


There are Greater Corporation (BBMP), Corporations, Municipalities, Councils and Town Panchayats functioning under above Acts & Rules. Even these Laws are applicable in Villages also BUT We saw non licensed slaughter houses functioning in each and every area, Town, Taluk, Districts and 64%+ meat eating population is compelled to consume un hyginic un tested Carcass in spite of presence of Health officials, Animal Husbandary officials, Vetarinary Officials. Cattle Godowns are also reported in many areas to smoothen illegal inter state cattle transportation. We observed acute non presence of Veteraniry Doctor officials who only can check and perform Anti mortem and Post Mortem. Un hyginic Meat shops can be seen un licensed, un checked. The responsiblity of issue License to Slaughter House or to Crack down and Stop it on the hands of Civic authorities only where nor they are issuing license nor they are cracking down on this trade and in turn Meat Markets and shops are functioning unchecked, un licensed, un regulated.


The Karnataka Police is known as one of the best FORCE in the nation. They are highely educated, learned, soft speaking person in all matters BUT in Cattle related CRIME their prsence is not strongly felt. May be due to high Political pressure or over Burdon Unwanted delays in registering FIR, resisting in putting IPC Sections, and providing time to illegal traffickers to assemble and create law and problem etc are reported at many places Unofficially informing the political pressure and un written instructions are reported Ignorance of proper procedure, Rules and Sections is also reported Investigation in animal related cases are not taken up to last point as to reach the real culprit other wise this crime would had been restricted much earlier We raised this point with Director General of Police during the meeting held in June, 2013 and we are still waiting for any direction. We discussed the matter during different meeting held in District Dy. Commissioner offices and Range IGPs Commissioner of Police etc and always got assurances.

Meeting with Director General of Police

Representation as under was given and matter was discussed at length. DGP assured of all steps in the matter and Directions to all concerned officials Dr. SK Mittal- Member Karnataka State Goseva Ayog called on Police Head Quarter at Naruptunga Road, Bangalore on Monday, 1st July, 2013 11 AM and was well received by different Police officials.

There shall be 25-30% natural increase in this number every year but record shows decline every year. There is downfall of 15 lac cow & Buffalo in last decade apart from app 35-40 lac speechless animals which would had been added to our live stock every year. Illegal Transportation & slaughter of Cow and its progeny Scenario: The heinous crimestarts from Government lands at hundreds of APMC Yards every day and on the strength of Health Certificates issued by Animal Husbandry Dept, travels under the nose of R.T.O, Police, APMC officials and Check posts. Poor speechless animals are transported from one corner of State to other corner & crosses inter state borders, most cruelly & mercilessly slaughtered without observing any hygiene, Law, Act & Rules. Sale of carcass can be seen with out any certification, violating Municipal Rules & Regulations. In spite of presence of such stringent Union & State statutory provisions,( Anx. A) Karnataka has become supplier state to neighboring Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra etc. Illegal slaughter of these speechless animals is going on in rampant way. Thousands of slaughter houses are functioning illegally with out any statutory control. Civic bodies have also provided Slaughter houses BUT with out any physical control and no Pre mortem or post mortem is even seen. Karnataka Police department is working very hard to maintain law and order in the State BUT seems insane on Crime related to poor speechless animals in spite of public concern and sentiment. As per fair estimate, more than 2,00,000 truck loads ever year transport 40-50 Lakh cow and Cattle illegally. Cattle Mafia is functioning in the state with muscle, political, money power and share. A Catthe purchased for RS. 3-4,000 fetches after slaughter RS.40,000/- or say RS. 20,000 Crore. .This animal & carcass trade is going on, unchecked, providing contaminated meat to consumer, putting heavy burden on exchequer. It is resulting in to depletion of live stock, high unaffordable price of Milk & milk products, penetration of milk made from Urea & detergent playing with the health of our next generation, non availability of organic compost, apart from hurting public sentiment of compassion towards speechless animals. As several departments are involved and need of coordination was felt, Government of Karnataka came forward and constituted Karnataka State Goseva Ayog. Ayog is striving very hard and after visiting

10 different corners of the State, we strongly feel that office of the Director General of Police shall intervene and take effective steps and suggest here as under: All concerned Police offices shall be directed to crack down on illegal Cow and Cattle slaughter and Transportation. Karnataka Police intelligence prepared list of illegal slaughter houses and must have reported on illegal transportation racket. Reports so received shall be shared and further called, particularly in interstate bordering Districts. F.I.R s booked in illegal transportation shall be shared and informed to respective. R.T O with whom the vehicle is registered to initiate proceedings under Karnataka Motor Vehicle Rules. Responsibility shall be fixed, reviewed in district, Range & State crime review meetings and erring official shall be suitably warned / punished. Animal welfare Organization and animal activists shall be provided protection and timely and effective working ensured on information provided by them shall be kept confidential. Special Task force shall be constituted at least at District level Cow and Cattle custody be only given to Animal Welfare Organization and not to accused in line with Honorable Supreme Court Directions Investigation in booked cases shall ensure 1. Origin 2. consignor, Destination, Consignee, regularity etc. We hope to receive your favor of action and strong direction with a copy to us at your earliest. Regards.
