Centre’s 2016 notification on Jallikattu balances sport, animal care: Javadekar

Union Minister Prakash Javadekar said on Wednesday that the Centre’s January 2016 notification, which is under legal scrutiny allowed the traditional sport while accommodating animal care concerns.

The Centre, on 8 January, 2016, had issued a notification lifting ban on Jallikattu with certain restrictions, which has been stayed by the Supreme Court.

Javadekar, who earlier held the Environment and Forests portfolio, remained positive that the Centre’s notification will stand judicial scrutiny as it was a very “balanced” solution taking care of both, animal rights and people’s sentiment.
