									Shri Jairam Ramesh, Minister for Environment and Forest, New Delhi.

The Ministry of Environment and Forests invites comments on the Draft Animal Welfare Act,
2011. This legislation, which will replace the existing Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1960,
will provide for enhanced penalties and clearer definitions of animal abuse. Kudos to founder
Chairman of PFA Haryana Shri Naresh Kadyan, representative of the International Organisation
for Animal Protection - OIPA in India for his continuous tireless efforts towards this right
directions.My comments are :* Whole Legislation should be cognizable and non-bailable in
legal terms, where as still offenses under this Acts are bailable. * No exemption and relaxation
for any religion to abuse, kill and sacrifice the animals.* Punishments be strong and effective.*
All living creatures other than human beings be protected under this legislation.* Foreign and
Exotic species needs attention.* Army, Police and para military forces, Zoo animals also needs
attention, care and rehabilitation. These animals also covered under this law, no exemptions be
given.* Experimentation on animals be banned.* Entertainment, performance, joy rides etc. from
animals also needs attention.* Cruel animal transportation be looked into.* Live stock definition
be looked into.* Slaughter houses be shut down.* Vegetarianism be promoted.* AWBI be
empowered to issue directions not advisory to the field functionaries and it should be mandatory
for all concerned to abide these directions in the interest of animal welfare.* Elephants and
Camels should be kept in their natural habitat and their shifting in trucks be banned and these
animals be included in the rules travel by foot, in past these animals were ignored, where as
Naresh Kadyan brought this points in the notice of then Union Minister concerned.* Community
pets - stray dogs also needs attention, their population shall be controlled by adopting spay and
neuter.* SPCA's / Infirmaries / Shelters / Ambulances also needs attention and it should be
mandatory. * Police powers be given to all recognized bodies and Special courts be set up for
speedy trials.* Dog breeders, pet shops and fish aquarium also needs attention.  * AWBI be
given more funds, staff and special court powers should be given to the AWBI / their recognized
bodies.* Fake, ineffective bodies be shut down and it should be mandatory for AWBI nominee to
take active part in the recognized AWO's affairs.* Copted members also needs attention, as
there are no certain guidelines to copt, no pick and choose, every recognized AWO's be given
chance for active participation.* Films screening committee members be chosen clockwise
amongst the recognized AWO's.* Master Trainer, Trainers, Hon. AWO's be treated on duty and
their performance be checked quarterly along with AWBI non officials members : tainted and
nonactive be dropped.* Award and punishment policy be introduced.* People should not be
allowed in AWBI for two consecutive terms as AWBI member / Chairman or Vice Chairman.*
Dogs have basic rights to bark and it should be protected, animal rights needs to be defined and
recognized. * Animal bet be banned as some people tie animal to attract Wild animals.*
Promote methods to minimize stress, pain and injuries to animals.* Funds received by NGO's
from Foreign countries to serve animals in India under FCRA be controlled by the AWBI, NGO's
performances should be assessed by AWBI regularly as well.* AWBI Head quarter be shifted
from Chennai to National Institute of Animal Welfare - NIAW premises in National Capital
Region - NCR for better coordination between AWBI, AWD and others.* Degree course on
Animal Welfare be introduced and NIAW be set up as Deemed University, field practical training

                                                        putting animals to sleep, we still have a surplus SO NO

24.   kendra Pinder        Stoke On Trent,              A review every 50 years is horrific, why has it not been
                           United Kingdom               done sooner? Also working with international animal
                                                        welfare groups rather than trying to block out what is going
                                                        on in your country form the rest of the world does not help.
                                                        Spadeing and neutering rather than breeding is needed.
                                                        Tougher laws, tougher sentences. Better welfare for farm
                                                        animals and thos that are made to work for humans.
                                                        CCTV, proper supervision, not a group like the RSPCA
                                                        who are a complete joke, Animal cruelty fo any kind must
                                                        be acted upon with tough sentences. Raising the bar in
                                                        regards to animal cruelty is needed as soon as possible.

                                                     tough as I might like but still has more teeth than the last
                                                     one. I'm glad Mr Kadyan and Mr Jayram Ramesh have
                                                     empowered animals even more. It's definitely a step in the
                                                     right direction. The next step will be to ensure that it's
                                                     enforced by the local police and other authorities.
