Explanatory Note

(This does not form part of the Notification, but is intended to indicate its general purport.) Section 229 of the Kerala Panchayat Raj Act, 1994 (13 of 1994) empowers the Grama Panchayat to provide places for use as public slaughter houses and section 230 empowers to grant licence for slaughtering animals within the Grama Panchayat area. Clause (xvi) of subsection (2) of section 254 empowers the Government to make rules to prohibit and to regulate the slaughtering of animals, cutting-up or their skinning at places other than public slaughter houses, to grant licence for those who slaughter animals for sale to the public and to fix the fees for the same. The Government have decided to make rules accordingly. The Notification is intended to achieve the above object.
