The International Organization for Animal Protection - OIPA in India and People for Animals (PFA) Haryana opined that to effectively ban cow slaughter a uniform law by moving the subject from the state list to either concurrent or Central list was essential. Besides, It is further proposes that induction of exotic blood should be discouraged and indigenous breed, which were of superior quality, should be encouraged. Chemical fertilizers should be replaced with organic manure and “gomutra chikitsa” (medicine system based on cow urine) should be recognized as an alternative system of treatment to develop a market for drugs based on “gomutra”. National Commission on Cattle, 2002 recommendations be implemented.
The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960 is a toothless legislation with minor punishments, it should be review and amended, violation of this Act be notified as a Cognizable offense in legal terms. New effective legislation be introduced for dog breeders and fish aquarium.
Further we needs review and amendments in the Hindu marriage code, banning marriages in the same gotra or DNA .
