About Pashu Aadhar Card
Pashu Aadhaar aims to expand the dairy sector in India. The National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) is developing the Information Network for Animal Productivity and Health (INAPH) which will be known as Pashu Aadhaar. As part of the scheme, all animals will be given an ear tag which will contain a bar-coded 12-digit unique identification number. INAPH will have all the data related to the animals registered, including their species, breed, and pedigree. It will also consist of information regarding calving, vaccination, and milk production.
Establishing Pashu Aadhaar was first proposed in 2015 by a government committee to prevent cattle smuggling. The committee’s recommendation came after a Supreme Court order on a plea against cattle trafficking.
According to a 2019 report, in the first phase of the project, the government aimed to cover 94 million productive “in milk” female cow and buffalo population, following which, other bovines such as calves, males and strays would be counted. However, by 2019, about 22.3 million cows and buffaloes were issued the UID and their entire data was uploaded on the INAPH database. Currently, 226,763,928 animals are registered under the project on the INAPH website.
