The innovation will start to operate soon.
In the Western Indian state of Gujarat passed a law according to which the slaughter of cows be punished by life imprisonment.
According to the amendments to the law on the protection of animals, transport of beef will also be punished with imprisonment up to 10 years.
Most people in India believe the cow is sacred: killing these animals is illegal in many States.
But the new amendment, which was adopted in Gujarat means that there will be tough law in the country.
Violators will be punished with heavy fines and jail. Besides, the fine is doubled, and now will have to pay $ 771.
Minister of Gujarat, Pradipasen Jadeja told reporters that the cow is a symbol of Indian culture and the amendment to the act added “after consultation with the people.”
Chief Minister Vijay Rupani has also repeatedly stated on “hard” punishment for those who kill a cow.
The new laws will take effect from Saturday.
