New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday declined to stay new cattle slaughter rules issued by the environment ministry, saying it was not in favour of passing any interim order. The court has issued a notice to the government, seeking explanation within two weeks.

The next date of hearing in the case is July 11.

Petitions challenged the May 23 notification, which imposed the prohibition on the sale of cattle — cows, bulls, buffaloes, camels, heifers — for the purpose of slaughter from animal markets.

Hyderabad-based All India Jamiatul Quresh Action Committee and others filed a petition in the apex court, seeking to quash the new cattle trade and slaughter rules.

The petition claimed new rules are arbitrary, illegal, and unconstitutional. It said the rules violate individual’s right to choice of food and thus personal liberty.

Centre’s rules sought to usurp the power of states in making regulations on livestock and are in contradiction to the parent law, Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act.

A complete ban of sale or purchase or resale of animals would cast a huge economic burden on the farmers and cattle traders.

According to the plea, these rules will embolden cow vigilantes to harass farmers and cattle traders.

According to sources, the government is likely to inform the SC that there is no intention to negate individual’s right to choice of food.

Govt is said to be considering a new regime for meat markets and may come up with a clarification on the new rules soon.



On May 30, Madras High Court had stayed the new rules for four weeks and sought Centre’s justification.

Kerala High Court also admitted another petition against the new rules on June 7.
