  • STATEMENT OF, TALUKS, BLOCK & GRAM PACHAYATS, MUNICIPALITIES &CORPORATIONS & SLAUGHTER HOUSES IN KERALAList of S. H. functioning in Blocks & Gramas was not provided by the Govt. Total 889 Licensed Slaughter houses are reported in Sample Survey Report.But on verification number of Meat Stall Licenses are found included in this figure. As per Public information this number is crossing 3000.Many Slaughterhouses are closed by Kerala State Pollution Control Board and are in process of renovation or new Construction thanks to Directions in W. P (Civil) 309/2003 by Hon’ble Supreme Court of India.General ObservationsKerala 80% population i.e. more than 25 million are reported consuming Beef or Mutton @ 3.5 KGS every month or say 40 KGS / year. 40% is estimated mutton & 60 % Beef . As per this assumption 4,00,000 MT Mutton & @. RS. 180 per KGS i.e. RS. 7200 Crores & 6,00,000 MT Beef @. RS. 90/- per KGS i.e. RS. 5400 Crore or total RS. 12,600 Crore / year. Apart from huge Export turnover
  • To get 4,00,000 MT Mutton app. 26.50 million Goat & Sheep and to get 6,00,000 MT- Beef app. 3 million Cattle are slaughtered in registered – unregistered – Licensed – Unlicensed – Legal – illegal – Civic administration – Gram Panchayats slaughter houses.As Kerala state do not have live stock to meet this huge requirement and it’s live stock is depleted in alarming speed. So, State is transporting Live Stock from nearby States. & Transportation of animals violating provisions of Prevention of Cruelty to Animal Act, 1960 PCA Act -Transportation of Cattle Rules, 1978, PCA Act- Transportation of animal Rules 2001, Indian Penal Code 427 & 429 & 153-A, Kerala Motor Vehicle Rule, 1989 Rule No. 197 etc seen in whole STATE.
  • Most of the official Slaughter houses working under the control of bidders / contractor . The bid amount per year is found very negligible say RS. 20,000/- per year though responsibility of maintenance , Ante Mortem, Post Mortem etc lies with Civic administration. Unlicensed Slaughter houses are reported in each and every corner. Gross violation of Prevention of Cruelty to Animal Act, 1960, Kerala Panchayat Ran Act, 1994 (Slaughter houses & Meat Stall Rules)- Kerala Municipality Act, Kerala Pollution Control Act & Rules, Hon’ble Supreme Court Order DT. 29.03.05 in W. P. (Civil) No. 309/2003 , ( Lakshminaryan Modi Vs. Govt. of India & others.) is observed. It can be called as failure of System & Government machinery under some invisible pressures.
  • This is resulting apart from violation of all Acts, Rules & Hon’ble Supreme Court Directions and resulting in supply of unhygienic food to more than 25 million consumers of the State. It may result is very bad health hazards.
  • Hygiene condition of all the Slaughter houses are very poor, as can be seen in different photographs. Most of the slaughter houses are situated in residential vicinities, using same drainage system, polluting whole area and Ground Water Level. Even Cochin Slaughter house is draining waste in Sea water.
  • Normal Slaughter house functioning starts early mornings. In most of the Slaughter houses, it ends before 8 AM morning. As Slaughter houses are located in residential areas and animal dealers / slaughter house contractors / meat stalls owners are localized in the same area, animals are brought same house day morning for slaughter. No resting time of minimum 24 hours is observed in any Slaughter Gross violation of PCA (Slaughter House ) Rules is observed.
  • Water is important element required in plenty in this industry and this facility is found lacing in most of the Slaughter houses.
  • Drinking water facilities are available through Tap water. Many places, it is used for other purposes.
  • Separate enclosures for different species of animals are not available in most of Slaughter housesSlaughtering in the presence of other animals was the general scene in almost all the Slaughter houses which is a great violation of PCA Act.
  • Halal is the uniform method adopted in all the Slaughter houses. Sticking ( cutting the major blood vessel in throat ) is the method adopted in all the Slaughter houses and blood is collected in small vessels at many places. It is reported sold to illicit liquor manufacturers.
  • Skinning and hiding of animals are done mostly on the floor though hangers / hooks are seen at many places. Even mechanization was seen at number of slaughter houses with huge Government investment but same is found in destroyed and in non operative condition.
  • Health Checkup of Butchers is not in practice. There is no age bar also witnessed. There is no notified regulation in implementation in whole State.
  • The butchers & other persons were found using water in the tub / tank. At most of the places, no wash basin, bathroom etc were found.
  • Facilities for inspection of CARCASS and VISCERA is not found in any Slaughter house.
  • The Skin & hide, Offal, horn, and hooves are collected & disposed same day
  • Flooring and walls even in slaughtering hall are only Cemented. At some places, in spite of washing, blood could not be washed. This inspection was not a surprised one. So, every where a trial was made to show high cleanliness. BUT a place which is not cleaned since years, can not be cleaned in one day or by sprinkling bleaching powder.
  • Solid waste is found dumped in the back yards. Most of the places, it is removed by Municipal Trucks on periodical basis. Bad smell was a normal complaint from the neighbors.
  • Blood and other liquid waste is seen drained through public drainage system. Open flowing was also seen at many places. Maintenance of Sanitation ad Hygiene by the Civic authorities were found to be lacking.
  • Kerala Motor Vehicle Rules, 1989 RULE 197 very clearly restricts the Transportation of Animals and directs the provision of Illicit slaughter is reported in whole State. Though list of app. 40 Slaughter Houses was provided but as per Sample Survey Even Government Report Number is 889 and public information crosses 3000. During the meeting with STATE level officials, it was gathered that Block & Gram Panchayats are functioning under elected representatives and functioning under their govern & dictate only.
  • The consumption pattern & number of Consumers, 95% demand is being met by these illicit Slaughter houses in violation of all applicable State & Central Acts & Rules. Apart from violation of different statutory provisions, of health & hygiene of consumers, workers & neighbors is at STAKE.
  • Ante Mortem & Post Mortem of the animals and Carcass system is invisible even in all so called authorized Slaughter houses. The carcass used by millions of consumers is resulting in supply of unchecked contaminated food. Sign of diseases like Anthrax, Chicken Guinea are reported. This needs immediate attention of all concerned. One big reason is felt unaccountability. The traders, involved in this trade weather bringing animals from other States or getting slaughtered, or selling carcass in Meat Stalls, are not in any kind of Tax net, nor in any other statutory Check. They are getting control of slaughter houses also in auction, without any binding on them for maintenance, Ante Mortem or Post Mortem, waste management, Cleanliness, etc. Operation Records were not found in most of the Slaughter houses
  • At some Slaughter houses, Veterinary officials of Animal Husbandry Department are called by Civic authorities either on petty honorarium or as an additional duty. Each Ante Mortem & Post mortem takes at least 5 minutes and animals are brought for slaughter same morning, than practically, one Vet. Doctor can not check animal more than 50 in a day. Whereas, in many Slaughter houses number crosses even 1000 animals / day. As a matter of fact, Slaughter houses shall be treated as an Industry and not as a free Service.


  • PAIN & SUFFERING of animals.? Yes Very painful. Complete violation of PCA ACT seen in all the slaughter houses.
  • Methods of transport of animals ? Very Cruel.
  • Availability of resting area and lair age ? At few places. There also not used as per statutory requirements
  • the transportation of animals by road or rail or on foot ? By Road Transport & on foot- Complete violation of PCA Transport of Cattle Rules & Karnataka Motor Vehicle Rule 74 is observed
  • Statutory societies in the Districts ? . District SPCA & State Animal Welfare Board are constituted. But not functioning – as required
  • Slaughter is conducted only in licensed / recognized slaughter houses in their respective Municipal or local authority area ? No- Even State Government accepts existence of unlicensed Slaughter houses though all Beef & Mutton Stalls are counted as Slaughter houses
  • Slaughter houses are in conformity with the provisions of PCA (Slaughter House) Rules, 2001? NO Gross violation is seen
  • Ensure that an animal is not slaughtered within the sight of other animal Animal which are pregnant or delivered with in 3 months or under the age of 3 months or Certified by the Veterinary Doctor as un fit for slaughter ? No. Not observed. No control on pregnant animal or delivered with in 3 months
  • Only authorized or licensed persons(above 18 years of age) free from infectious or contagious diseases are employed in slaughter houses.? No Check & no medical check up system in practice
  • Reception area, resting grounds and lair ages are made available and 24 hours resting time allowed prior to slaughter as per Rules.? No
  • sufficient number of Veterinarians are appointed for ante mortem & post mortem certification? No
  • Implementation of different State & Union Acts & Rules on animal supply, transport, slaughter houses, sale of carcass, effect on health and hygiene of consumer and exchequer? Gross violation of all statutory requirements are in practice

...............SUGGESTION & RECOMMENDATION.................

1. Question of not only cruelty, violation of acts & rules, loss to exchequer but it raises question of health of more than 35 million meat eaters & health of millions of residents residing nearby slaughter houses.
2. The major question is to ensure the checking of animals before & after slaughter as it relates to health of consumer. For this ante mortem & post mortem are statutory requirement but the system is failed. We want to suggest the onus be shifted from civic bodies & be put on animal owner / person offering the animal for slaughter and taking carcass to meat stall.

3. There are more than 4,000 veterinary degree holders spread in each & every corner of state. Area wise penal of these doctors shall be formed.

4. A fee per ante mortem & post mortem per animal be fixed. Say, rs. 25/- per big animal & Rs. 10 /- per small animal. Which shall be paid along with animal offered. Maximum number of ante mortem & post mortem per doctor be fixed. Say, 50 numbers a day.

5. These doctors shall certify, & shall held responsible, for fitness of animal as per all statutory requirements and shall submit their report in writing to concerned department.

6. Cost of ante mortem & post mortem on the assumed quantity of 48.50 million small animals @ rs. 10/- & 3.60 million big animals @rs. 25/- comes to rs. 57.50 crores. Against turnover of rs. 16,700 crores. I.e. 0.34% or say 0.40 paisa per kg. To ensure the health of 35 million citizen, and saving hundreds of crores of medicine bills, this cost is very meager.

7. Different government agencies shall be warned and responsibility with penal proceedings be fixed on report of violation and their non action .

8. SPCA at district level & state animal welfare board at state level shall monitor working of slaughter houses & shall report periodically to animal welfare board of india.

9. Directions issued by honorable supreme court of india in wp ( civil) . 309/2003 in laxmi narayan modi v/s govt. Of india & others are not being implemented. We bring to the kind notice of hon’ ble supreme court and suggest that status report shall be called and action be initiated against defaulting agencies.

10. In general, slaughter houses shall be treated as an industry and needed modernization shall be implemented fulfilling the norms established under different statutes & where ever, required site be shifted in interest of public health & hygiene.

11. Effective implementation of rules with regards to transportation, sale, purchase, sanitation, waste management etc. Shall be implemented by different agencies.
