In Haryana, tagging and evaluation of cattle would be carried out in all gaushalas by April, 2016. There are about 423 registered and unregistered gaushalas in the State which have about three lakh cattle heads.
Chairman, Haryana Gau Sewa Aayog, Bhaniram Mangla said that a decision to this effect was taken in a review meeting of the Aayog held on Tuesday.
Mangla said that the evaluation would be carried out to find out the number of indigenous cows, jersey cows, calves and bulls in the gaushalas. He said that after implementation of the Gauvansh Sanrakshan and Gausamvardhan Act, the Aayog has taken the initiative to establish Gau Greh for 100 cows in every village with the help of panchayat and villagers.
Also, there is a proposal to develop five gaushalas as ‘Adarsh Gaushalas’ next year, and make gaushalas self-dependent. The Aayog has provided grant of more than Rs three crore to 253 gaushalas for fodder, he said.
