Cows and buffaloes in India will be issued identity cards

Thursday, 5 January 2017

INDIA: A plan is underway to give identity cards to cows in India.

The animals, which are considered sacred to the Hindu community, will be given “animal health cards”, similar to the Aadhar system in place for India’s human citizens.

The plan to assign 12-digit identification numbers to the 41 million buffaloes and 47 million cows in India by end of this year, was initiated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself.

Aimed to boost the income of the dairy sector by 2022, yellow, tamper-proof tags are being attached to the animals’ ears by 100,000 technicians across India.

The identity cards will be held by the owners, and they can track activities and information about each cattle, through an online database.

Such information would ensure timely vaccinations, monitoring breeding cycles, and allow for scientific intervention improving breeding and quality milk production.

To cause minimal inconvenience to the animals, the tags are designed to last for years and weigh just 8g.

This is not the first time cows have been issued with cards in India, albeit on such a large scale.
