Punjab would emulate Gujrat and Madhya Pardesh by introducing chip system to maintain exact count of cows in the state.
Revealing this, Punjab Gow Sewa Commission chairman Kimti Lal Bhagat said here on Monday that a micro chip with unique identification number would be implanted in every cow which would be difficult to remove. The technique would help the state prepare a database for cows which would further help in their conservation, he added. He informed that the same company which had undertaken the cow tagging work in the other two states had been hired by Punjab. Chips would also help in checking fraudulent loans and claims against cow insurance policies, he claimed.
