Here is the outcome of our last hearing at the National Green Tribunal (NGT) against unregistered and unlicensed slaughterhouses and meat shops in Chennai that was carried in Tamil language paper of The Hindu.
NGT warned the Chennai Corporation and other respondents for being inefficient
in implementing its order to ban unlicensed meat shops and slaughterhouses. The tribunal may also slap a fine against the respondents in the next hearing if they fail to file replies.
The NGT had passed an order banning unlicensed slaughterhouses and meat shops in Chennai on 28th November 2013. It had directed the respondents to take punitive action against such unlicensed slaughterhouses and meat shops. So far in the last several hearings respondent no. 1 Chennai Corporation has been giving contradictory statistical
data on unlicensed meat shops.
PFCII has been fighting relentlessly to stop the illegal slaughtering of the cattle. You can follow our NGT case here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.705555642805697.1073741850.677829325578329&type=3
