Indian Government Plans To Issue ID Cards To Cows

The Indian government's move to issue biometric-based unique ID numbers to cows and buffaloes in the country has raised eyebrows. Cow vigilantes and right-wing Hindutva groups have also grabbed attention now and then with their vicious attacks on people suspected of mistreating cattle.

The government plans to spend about 500 million rupees (around €6.26 million, $7.81 million) to assign 40 million cattle a unique 12-digit identity number, in the same way it has come up with a unique ID for every individual as part of the nation's ambitious identity card scheme, called Aadhaar.

The reasons given to justify the project are multifold: to keep track of the nation's cattle; protect them from smuggling gangs; help in taking care of abandoned animals and management of cow shelters, among others. "We want to improve breeding and milk production, and double the industry's income by 2022," said an agricultural ministry official working on the National Mission on Bovine Productivity scheme.
