New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Tuesday asked the Central and Delhi governments to submit the steps taken to regulate sale of birds and animals here, pursuant to draft rules made on the subject in 2010.
The matter came up before the court of Chief Justice G. Rohini and Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw in the form of a public interest litigation, where it was alleged that illegal sale of birds and animals has been “thriving” in the absence of norms.
It added that trade in pets was in urgent need of regulation.
According to the PIL, filed by environmentalist Gauri Maulekhi, animals in pet shops are kept in an unhygienic manner and transported in appalling conditions due to lack of guidelines.
“The draft rules [Pet Shop Rules, 2010] have been prepared with a view to ensure that animals sold as pets or as commodity receive proper care and humane treatment as long as they are in the possession of shopkeepers or during transportation,” the PIL added.
