Karnataka Goshala Mahasangh ® welcome and heartily congratulate Karnataka Government for passing necessary amendments in Karnataka Prevention of Cow Slaughter and Cattle Preservation Act, 1964


14.12.2012 : A day full of Joy in animal lovers today as long pending demand was fulfilled by Janapriya Chief Minister Sri Jagadish Shettar and Law minister Sri S. Suresh Kumar, Animal Husbandry Minister Revu Nayak Belmagi  for passing necessary amendments in Karnataka Prevention of Cow Slaughter and Cattle Preservation Act,1964 during the winter Assembly Session at Suvarna Vidhana Soudha, in Belgaum yesterday.
Karnataka Prevention of Cow Slaughter and Cattle Preservation (Amendment) Bill, 2012 was passed in the legislative assembly and council on Thursday amidst a walkout by opposition parties. The bill will now go to Governor H.R. Bhardwaj for his approval.
The bill seeks to ban the slaughter of cows, bulls and bullocks. It was proposed to amend the Karnataka Prevention of Cow Slaughter and Cattle Prevention Act, 1964, to enlarge the definition of cow so as to include bulls and bullocks and empower the competent authority to issue a certificate in case of animals that can be slaughtered. Animals aged 15 years or above can be slaughtered after obtaining the permission of the authorities.
The Act bans slaughter of all forms of animals including, cows, ox and bulls besides banning the slaughter of calves. The government will set up an authority which will be the certifying agency to decide the animal's age and will give the green signal for slaughter if the particular animal is aged over 15. Officers above the rank of sub inspector are entitled to levy penalties for violating the law.
Any violation of the act will amount to imprisonment of one year which can be extended upto seven years and a fine of Rs 25,000- Rs 50000 or both.
The BJP government was forced to withdraw the bill on Wednesday following technical error in printing as the Kannada and English versions differed. While the Kannada version mentioned the Karnataka Prevention of Cow Slaughter and Preservation Bill, 2011, the English version printed the year as 2012.
The above amendments will save millions of lives and will help State exchequer, GDP, Rural growth and Youth and women empowerment

Sri S. Suresh Kumar Ji,
Greetings,

Karnataka Goshala Mahasangh ® is functioning since many years as representative of Goshalas, Cattle safety, implementation of Laws and welfare of State under the divine blessing and guidance of Honorary President Sri Sri Balagangadhanath Mahaswami Ji peethadhipati of Sri Adichunchangiri Math. We draw attention towards fast depleting Bull and Bullock stock in Karnataka.

We have Karnataka Prevention of Cow slaughter and  Preservation of Cattle Act (35 Act of 1964) in force in the State but a large number of Bull & Bullock are sent to slaughter, not only to Karnataka slaughter houses BUT to nearby Sates.

This depletion is resulting in to big threat to our Draught power, breed improvement, milk production and in turn hampering Rural growth, women empowerment and also our religious sentiments. Karnataka Goshala Mahasangh® is struggling very hard and Government even decided to stop this evil and passed Karnataka Prevention of slaughter and Preservation of Cattle Bill in 2010 but is held up in becoming Act ill date

Looking the urgent necessity and show Government commitment, immediate action is required.

Cow slaughtering is prevalent in our country despite laws against it. All the cow-lovers have to join hands to ensure that 'Gaumata' is not slaughtered in our country at all!
