Cess to fund cow shelters to protect stray cows in UP| Ghanti Bajao

Updated 03 Jan 2019 11:18 AM

The BJP government decided Tuesday to introduce an additional levy of 0.5 per cent as cow welfare cess on eight profit-making public sector infrastructure companies to fund the construction and maintenance of cow shelters.
The cess will also apply on travel on some expressways where motorists already pay a toll.
In addition `mandi parishads, which have been giving 1 per cent of their income for cow welfare, will now be asked to pay 2 per cent.
The Samajwadi Party, the Congress and the Bahujan Samaj Party have criticised the move.
