Drive against the illegal dairy units within JMC limits.

Taking serious note of the complaints pouring in JMC regarding menace created by illegal diary units within the limits of Jammu Municipal Corporation, the Municipal Veterinary Officer (MVO), Dr. Jaswant Singh and Chief Enforcement Officer, Sh. Rajesh Gupta along with other staff of JMC initiated the drive against the illegal dairy units. During the drive JMC lifted animals from Chinore area with the assistance of police personnel of the concerned Police station. Dr. Jaswant Singh, MVO said that most of the dairy owners have not constructed their cattle sheds properly, no proper disposal of cow dung is taking place and the same is being disposed off in the Municipal lanes/drains or dumped inside the dairy unit, sometimes dumped in the nearby vacant residential plots thus causing foul smell, health hazard, environmental pollution and insanitary conditions in and around the residential areas. Majority of the dairy owners after milking let loose their animals on roads and streets resulting in frequent traffic jams and accidents sometimes their death too. JMC has issued notices to all the dairy owners running their units illegally within JMC limits to get them registered with JMC as per the framed guidelines, else close down or relocate them outside JMC limits but despite issuing notices from time to time, but no one have come forward for registration of their units. He further appealed to all the dairy owners to get their dairy units registered with JMC to properly maintain the hygienic conditions in and around the dairy units by doing proper disposal of cow dung. He also added that such drives will continue in near future as well.
