AMC’s E-donation Efforts Fall Short in Controlling Stray Cattle in Ahmedabad

Ahmedabad’s Stray Cattle Reduced

The city of Ahmedabad has seen a noticeable reduction in stray cattle on its streets after the high court prompted action by the civic body’s cattle nuisance control department. This reduction has also led to the removal of fodder vendors where people would traditionally feed cows. As a result, the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) introduced an online payment page in September for citizens to donate towards the purchase of fodder for the cattle now housed in panjrapols (cattle pounds).

Lack of Donations for Cattle Feeding

Despite the introduction of the payment gateway, the CNCD department has not received a single donation on the online portal. Some citizens are now directly going to the panjrapols to feed the cattle, bypassing the online payment option. Many cattle feeding spots across the city have been removed, and the sale of fodder for charitable feeding of cattle within the city has been prohibited.

Cattle Ownership Regulations

Under the new Cattle Nuisance Control Policy 2023, cattle owners need to show that they have land to keep their animals. Those without adequate land must relocate their animals, with the deadline for cattle owners without licenses to remove their animals from the city expiring soon. The AMC has received over 1,000 applications for cattle licenses, with licenses being approved, rejected, or still in the processing stage.

Licenses and Penalties

A license-permit system has been implemented for cattle ownership in the city, with fees and a three-year validity period. Additionally, every animal in the city must be implanted with an RFID tag. The policy also includes penalties for individuals obstructing CNCD operations, with penalties increasing for repeated offences.

FAQs

Q: Has the reduction in stray cattle had any impact on the city?

A: The new Cattle Nuisance Control Policy 2023 requires cattle owners to show that they have land to keep their animals, with a license-permit system, fees, and penalties for non-compliance.

Conclusion

These regulations and penalties are part of the city’s efforts to control stray cattle and ensure responsible ownership and management of cattle within city limits.
