ANI tweeted According to The Times of India the centre also brought up the issue of cow protection and cattle smuggling across the India-Bangladesh border A report in The Economic Times in January said that nearly one lakh technicians are fanning out across the country since 1 January and will affix a tag containing a 12-digit unique identification number inside the ear of every single cow and buffalo in the country — all 88 million of them The ambitious project will be concluded by the end of this year and comes at a cost of Rs 148 crore These "animal Aadhaar cards" will contain the breed and age of the cattle as well as information about the owner location and also details about its vaccination This move comes about a year after Jharkhand embarked upon a similar mission to trace and tag the 42 lakh cattle it had According to a report in Hindustan Times Jharkhand animal husbandry officials were asked to undergo the exercise to monitor and check the illegal trade of cattle The committee set up in pursuance of the court order has recommended having tamper-proof identification of cattle by using polyurethane tags and a state-level data base may be uploaded at a website which may be linked with a national online database The recommendations were placed before a bench of Chief Justice J S Khehar and Justice D Y Chandrachud which listed the PIL filed by Akhil Bharat Krishi Gosewa Sangh for Tuesday for passing directions by considering these recommendations The issue before the apex court also included concern over smuggling of cattle to Nepal for being sacrificed at the Gadhimai festival held once in five years and a petition relating to it filed before the festival in 2014 The instant petition concerning trafficking of cattle to Bangladesh was filed by Akhil Bharat

pass directions based on them to states as the issue fell in the state list of the Constitution The panel in its recommendations said "The committee recommends that Chief Secretary of respective states to regularly monitor the performance of various departments of the state governments including RTO state police and animal husbandry department and ensure prevention of cattle smuggling /illegal transportation of cattle by way of periodic reports The move aims to check cattle smuggling across borders Reuters "At the central level monitoring could be done by Ministry of Environment

of cattle using polyurethane tags with a unique identification number sequence This may be made mandatory for all cows and their progeny throughout India for all cattle that is owned Already mass tagging of cattle for insurance purpose is being done by livestock development boards and animals husbandry department of state governments" it suggested It said the Foreign Trade (Development and Regulation) Act read with Export-Import Policy (Exim policy) of India mandates that cattle can only be exported from the country with a valid licence from the regional licensing authority "In order to check the smuggling of livestock across India’s borders there may be strict enforcement of the EXIM policy by the relevant customs authorities transport department police and border guarding forces as per the law" it recommended The panel said even where animals are travelling with a licence across the border care may be taken to check the manner in which they are being transported to prevent cruelty to them It advocated seeking of cooperation from public to give information on the movement of animals for the purpose of smuggling through helpline numbers of BSF and state police Regarding compliance of the July last year’s order of Himachal Pradesh banning cow slaughter in the country and imposing prohibitions on import and export of cow and sale of beef the report said that an

am A still from the film Ka Bodyscapes Top News The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has refused to certify the Malayalam film Ka Bodyscapes saying it glorified “the subject of gay and homosexual relationship” and portrayed the Hindu religion in a derogatory manner by showing Hanuman “in poor light as gay” It also objected to the portrayal of a Muslim woman masturbating The move came days after the CBFC refused to clear the film Lipstick Under My Burkha as the “story is lady-oriented” The refusal to certify Ka Bodyscapes came from the board’s Second Revising Committee in Thiruvanthapuram The board’s letter to filmmaker Jayan Cherian was signed by the regional officer Prathiba A Cherian said the move went against the Kerala High Court order to certify the film with recommended changes “The film was first submitted to the CBFC in Thiruvanthapuram in April last year but they refused to certify it as did the Revising Committee in Chennai” Cherian said “I then approached the High Court where the judge asked the CBFC to certify the film in 30 days However the CBFC chose to ignore the judgment and filed an appeal stating that the case should have been addressed by a bench with more than one judge In December 2016 the two-judge bench dismissed that appeal and asked them to certify the film in 90 days But that too was overlooked by the CBFC” the filmmaker said “The Second Revising Committee headed by CBFC chairperson Pahlaj Nihalani again refused the film a certification” he said Nihalani was unavailable for comment Cherian said the film that has been selected at several festivals was denied permission to be screened after intervention from the Information and Broadcasting Ministry “For instance screening at the Kerala Film Festival was cancelled at the last moment under pressure from the ministry” Cherian added The film Cherian said revolves around a gay artist battling censorship against his work “The artwork in his studio depicts the history of gay art including nude works by noted artists from across the world But what the CBFC sees and also objects to is the nudity in those paintings” he said The New York-based filmmaker added that in defiance of the High Court judgment the members with the exception of Nihalani did not identify themselves during a Mumbai screening on February 17 Cherian said the committee asked him to approach the apex court if he did not accept their decision “The court case can take ages It’s already been a year since the film was completed How can the CBFC be allowed to take such arbitrary

ready for it “A season style would be very interesting but it is going to take time for the audience to come to that level It is better for reality shows as of now but when you talk about a loyal
