India’s first cow sanctuary, Kamdhenu Gau Abhayaranya, will be privatised soon.

  • Located in Agar-Malwa district (Madhya Pradesh), the sanctuary was established in the year 2017 at a cost of Rs 32 crore and can house around 6,000 cows at full capacity.
  • It mainly has cows which are old and sick or have stopped producing milk.
  • Over the last one year, more than 600 cows died due to extreme weather conditions. The government is finding it hard to tackle with the same.
  • The decision of privatisation has also been taken due to the financial crisis.
  • The government is looking for a social or religious organisation to manage the sanctuary and serve the cows.
