The Rashtriya Kamdhenu Aayog or National Cow Commission will suggest the new government at the Centre to make it mandatory for companies like KRIBHCO and IFFCO to manufacture 10 per cent bio-fertilizers from cow dung and cow urine out of their total annual production.

It will also propose incentives for private fertilizer companies for producing bio-fertilizers and bio-pesticides from the cow dung and cow urine.

The combined effect of the proposals, the Aayog argues, would significantly reduce country’s dependence on imported fertilizer and save the precious foreign exchange.

“It will ensure proper use of cow dung and cow urine. We are importing almost 92 per cent of the chemical fertilizer. Production of organic fertilizer would reduce the import and save foreign exchange.

“It (mandatory production of bio-fertilizer) would change the mindset of people as they would find it remunerative enough to do dairy farming and other related activities,” Rashtriya Kamdhenu Aayog chairman Ballabhbhai Kathiria told IANS.

“It will have positive and long-lasting effect on the economy,” he added. Once the new government comes to the power and budgetary works start, the proposal would be moved through the Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilizers.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi chaired the Union Cabinet last February approved setting up of Rashtriya Kamdhenu Aayog for conservation, protection and development of cows and their progeny.

The efforts of Aayog are expected to result in increased growth of livestock sector benefiting women and marginal farmers.

Asked about difficulties in sourcing of cow dung for manufacturing bio-fertilizer, Kathiria said it won’t be a problem given that there are 1,000 goshalas and Pinjarapoles (shelters where aged and sick farm animals are kept) in the country which have at least 1,000 cows.

“So, raw material would be readily available. Just like milk is collected from villages and brought to cities, cow-dung and cow urine would be collected using (suitable) vehicles. Then it will go to the manufacturing plants,” the Kamdhenu Aayog Chairman said.

Kathiria argued that the move would reduce distress in the farm sector besides giving major push to organic farming that will create a healthy India. (IANS)

Sanjay Sharma always contemplated that if there is one thing that can save the planet from disasters, it will be “Gau Raksha” (Cow Safety). Being a journalist for more than two and a half decade, he had a penchant for writing about Gau Mata.

According to him, the newspaper is a medium that reaches millions and hence it was important to illuminate people about the positives of Gau Mata. Thus, Sanjay Sharma launched Gau Bharat Bharti on June 18, 2015.

It is a registered and independent multilingual national weekly newspaper based on “Gau Mata”, which is the first of its kind published in Mumbai.

The cow is a science unto itself. Unless you view cow from a scientific perspective, the debates will keep on raging. With the same perspective, the team of Gau Bharat Bharti and patrons strive to bring awareness to people and preserve the culture of worshipping Gau Mata.

Not only this, from dairy products to fertilizers, everything can be obtained from the holy cow. Gau Bharat Bharati has slowly and steadily amassed acknowledgment and appreciation from people of Mumbai, parts of Maharashtra and Gujarat.

The team pledges to ensure that the various medicinal, herbal products of “Gau Mata” become accessible to all sections of the society at a moderate value.

Sanjay also hails Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath actions towards admitting cow as “Mata” (Mother) and sanctions against the illegal slaughterhouse for cows in UP.

Sanjay devours Gomutra (Cow urine) every day. He believes that the cow urine therapy can cure many chronic diseases. With the help of his weekly newspaper, he is aiming towards a blissful nation if everyone of us will continue to preserve our holy mother cow.
