The International Organisation for Animal Protection - OIPA in India Media Adviser Abhishek Kadyan and People for Animals ( PFA ) Haryana Director Ms. Sukanya Kadyan have observed many big dairy farms in India and found the same position, ill treatment with all male calves, these are being killed for profit and personnel gain, where as the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960 is totally ineffective to control these kinds of killings due to non-cognizable offenses in legal terms with very minor punishments. No doubt section 12 of the above act is cognizable along with mandatory provisions but it is very complicated to prove that's why only one judgement was found only in cattle train FIR No. 293 dated 10-12-2000 under section 12 of the PCA Act, 1960 lodged with GRP, Faridabad by Naresh Kadyan followed by another FIR No. 374 against same style cattle train dated 28-12-2000 under section Cow Slaughtering read with PCA Act, 1960 sections with GRP, Gaziabad but all concerned enforcement agencies are silent and not interested to prosecute the offenders, the Animal Welfare Board of India - AWBI officials are not taking interest in these kinds of cases, where as 65 cows in five Railway boogies were proved to Oxytocin injection operated but not forfeited due to negligence of Police officials in Faridabad case. The offenders of the Gaziabad case moved to the Allahabad High Court but concerned Bench uphold all the objections raised by Naresh Kadyan and accused petition was dismissed, 40 boogies cows are with the Gaushalas till today.
Naresh Kadyan lodged an FIR against the National Dairy Development Institute - NDRI, Karnal for misusing the Oxytocin injection on 16 Murrah buffaloes for lactation, the sting operation was made and telecast by the ND TV and then he moved public interest litigation - PIL in the Punjab and Haryana High Court, Chandigarh, this PIL is cine die. The award was given by the Committee for the Purpose of Control and Supervision of Experiments on Animals - CPCSEA removing Naresh Kadyan from its nominee position with out any reasons only to help the offenders. All big animals are auctioned by these Institutions and this practice was controlled by Naresh Kadyan alone and not a single animals was allowed for fistula over there.
The following rules also needs teeth along with amendments in legal status and punishments with out any further delay. Strong legislation and rules are also required for Dairy farms, males calves protection as well. All animals in commercial Dairy farms should be micro chipped, closely monitored by the AWBI or its authorized person vise verse, quarterly reports along with authorized persons integrity should also be evaluated regularly. OIPA in India ready to give full cooperation and support.

Male calves be killed for leather and cow be abused as milking machine. UN affiliated OIPA chapter in India strongly opposing this new syndicate of animal abusers :
The Indian Farmers Fertiliser Cooperative (Iffco) is close to setting up a dairy project jointly with an overseas partner to cash in on the growing demand of milk, says a senior official. The company is likely to finalise a JV partner, either an American company or a New Zealand firm, within a couple of months, managing director US Awasthi told a press conference. The foreign firm will be an equity partner in the project that will require an investment of 1,000 crore and will be set up in the forthcoming SEZ in Andhra Pradesh. “We will begin with 6,000 high-breed cattle stocks and a processing capacity of one million litre of milk a day,” said Mr Awasthi. India is the world’s largest milk producer with a production of 108 million tonnes a year. The demand for milk is projected to rise to 180 million tonnes by 2021. Amul is the biggest player in India. The country’s nodal agency for dairy production, National Dairy Development Board (NDDB), has chalked out a 15-year National Dairy Plan (NDP) entailing an investment of 17,000 crore, for bovine productivity and milk production. Iffco will sell milk under the Iffco Doodh brand name. Similarly, other products will be named as Iffco Cheese, Iffco Butter etc. The company plans to sell its dairy products in domestic and foreign markets. Iffco is developing a special economic zone at Nellore in Andhra Pradesh, Iffco Kisan SEZ, which will entail an investment of about 5,000 crore and will be spread over 2,600 acre. “The SEZ, which will be mainly dedicated to the farmers for producing agricultural and milk products, is expected to be completed by the end of next financial year,” said Mr Awasthi. Farmers would own a part of the equity in the projects while co-operatives would continue to be the main channel for distributing the products.
Hence Her Excellency the President of India is here by requested to please direct concerned Minister to discontinue the agreement and ask IFFCO to be a humane towards animals, where as Govt. should work for welfare for every body including all living creatures other then human beings. Complaint has been lodged vide No. PRSEC/E/2011/12831 and MOEAF/E/2011/00300 dated 12-8-2011.
It would be pertinent to mention here that the consortium will import 9,000 high yielding pregnant cows from New Zealand over a three-year period. There are also plans to import frozen embryos and semen for subsequent breeding, In such mega dairies, cows are mostly kept indoors with little access to natural surroundings. Cows farmed intensively like this are bred to produce unnaturally large amounts of milk which can make them more susceptible to health problems. Cows will be compelled to give milk under very heavy stress, pain and male calves be suffering a lot, why unnecessary pain and sufferings?
OIPA in India demands strong legislation for animals be introduced in India to minimize the stress, pain and sufferings to the animals, present toothless AWBI be replaced with a "National Commission on Animal Welfare" along with judicial powers, where as AWBI can't do any more being an advisory body headed by a retired Veterinary Doctor, Rahul Gandhi's young, energetic team is needed to speed up the welfare activities in the country.
