The Centre today told the Supreme Court that it is considering representations on the cattle trade rules and will make necessary changes by the end of August.
Cattle Rules: Centre says it won't challege stay by Madras High Court, Supreme Court records the same, disposes of matter.— Bar & Bench (@barandbench) July 11, 2017
According to reports, the government told the apex court that public protests have driven it to re-look cattle slaughter ban rules. The government has also informed that it does not plan to challenge stay on the rules by Madras High Court.
According to Live Law, the Supreme Court held that the stay is applicable to the entire country. The court also disposed off four petitions which challenged Centre’s notification banning sale of cattle in animal markets for slaughter.
“It is pointed out by the Centre that the issues under challenge are subject matter of fresh consideration and concerned authorities are seized of it. It is submitted that the rules will be renotified after appropriate changes. In the above view of the matter we do not find any reason to keep the petitions pending,” the portal quoted a bench of Chief Justice J S Khehar and Justice D Y Chandrachud as saying.
