The Animal Welfare Board of India is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (PCA) Act 1960(59 of 1960) was enacted in December 1960 with the object of preventing infliction of unnecessary pain and suffering to animals. The Govt. of India, Ministry of Food and Agriculture constituted the Animal Welfare Board of India on 19th March 1962.

People involved in the field of animal rights and their welfare are respectable but Major General Ram Mehar Khareb after retiring from the Indian Army managed Chairmanship of the Animal Welfare Board of India due to Smt. Sonia Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, as claimed by Ram Mehar Khareb.

Retired from Indian Army, Ram Mehar Singh Khareb adopting double standard and promoting animal abusers because he is practicing as a Veterinarian in the National capital region along with his son and daughter in law, occasionally they visit Mrs. Priyanka Gandhi Vadhera to see her pets. Now Ram Mehar Khareb enjoying many consecutive terms as Chairman, AWBI and start harassing, ignoring serious activist's in the field of animal rights and their welfare, so he may be removed immediately from the Chairmanship with out any further delay for natural justice to the animals because he is promoting many circuses, routine animal abuse, cruel animal transportation and he failed to perform his official duties, adopting double standard, harassment, biased techniques. Docked tail dogs, feather chopped birds and blind Hippo allowed to perform in Jumbo circus, effective activist was ignored and unskilled so called co-opted member were deputed to kill investigations against Jumbo circus.

Being an Chairman of the Animal Welfare Board of India - AWBI he isn't a Master of the animal welfare movement of India nor his retired army official team.

PRSEC/E/2011/18303 and MOEAF/E/2011/00409dated 24-11-2011

3. Please supply me the list of Inspecting Authorities, co opted members nominated by the AWBI during Ram Mehar Khareb tenure since beginning to till date along with the back ground, performance of all the nominees in the field of animal rights and their welfare.
4. Shri Ram Mehar Khareb is maintaining AWBI Chairman camp office at his permanent residence 3767, Sector 23, Gurgaon, Which kinds of facilities including staff are being provided by the AWBI / Ministry in a residential area and how much amounts has been spent for the routine work of the AWBI maintaining from his camp office during Ram Mehar Khareb tenure, where as he is a full time official of the AWBI head quarter at Chennai and he always claims air ticket to perform his official duties to move from Gurgaon to Chennai etc ?
5. Is he entitled to use the state emblem of India on his letter head and visiting cards?
6. How and why Ram Mehar Khareb sanctioned and disbursed funds to a gurukul situated at Ladaut village in Rohtak District / Why he is sanctioning tractor - trolly as ambulance ?
7. How many costly gift he has accepted like cow statue of silver from Gaushala situated in Sisana (Sonipat), first he sanctioned animal ambulance to Aasa Ram Gaushala, Dhancholi (Mahendergarh), then rejected and again sanctioned, what is the truth behind? ABC funds also sanctioned to pick and choose basis, his veterinarian son many times visited foreign tour along with him, for what purpose, Is he got any invitation before Ram Mehar nomination as chairman, AWBI?...........middle man like Jagat Singh of Natwer Singh. New year celebration in Goa under the PCA Act amendment committee cover also needs attention.
Why Ram Mehar Khareb biased with Naresh Kadyan, where as he is most active, result oriented and dedicated animal rights activist in India but he was removed from the AWBI Inspection team by Ram Mehar Khareb, not co-opted as AWBI member nor utilized his tireless services for animal rights and their welfare, he was never placed in the guest faculty of the National Institute of Animal Welfare - NIAW. Under Ram Mehar influence a letter was sent to the UP Chief Wildlife Warden about Naresh Kadyan because he lodged FIR against Aligarh Muslim University officials for the violation of the Wild Life Protection Act, 1972 being an Master Trainer, AWBI. Ram Mehar Kharab failed to perform his official duties, to serve animals in Uttrakhand disaster, All sanctions and approval given by the sub committee for films needs to be check, all NOC needs to be reviewed.
We strongly recommended that Naresh Kadyan be nominated as Chairman - Vice Chairman, Animal Welfare Board of India in the interest of animals.
