Which ministry bans the cattle slaughter Across India?

[A]. Ministry of Environment
[B]. Ministry of Civil Aviation
[C]. Ministry of Human Resource Development
[D]. Ministry of agriculture and Farmer welfare

Answer: Option A


The Environment Ministry banned cattle slaughter and introduced restrictions on the sale of cattle to prevent their killing. Animal markets cannot be set up within 50 km of an international border and 25 km from a state border. All animal markets have to run with the approval of district animal market committee to be headed by a magistrate. A gazette notification, titled Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Regulation of Livestock Markets) Rules, 2017 by the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change states that no one can bring cattle to an animal.
