NITI Aayog, a government think-tank keen to improve the cow dung economy, is working on a roadmap to enable commercial use of cow dung. The possibility of bio-CNG from cow dung as a petrol option is also being considered. NITI Aayog member Ramesh Chand said that this will help in tackling the problem of stray animals. The commission has asked economic think tank NCAER to prepare a report on the economy of Gaushala.

A team of government officials led by Ramesh, a member of NITI Aayog, visited large gaushalas in Vrindavan in Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and other parts of the country and inspected their condition. He said that 10 to 15 percent cows give very little milk, due to which there is no cost of wages, fodder and treatment etc. The issue of cattle abandonment by owners resurfaced in the recently concluded Uttar Pradesh elections. He also mentioned the benefits of making Bio-CNG from cow dung.

“It will not harm the environment and we will use it as energy which will also give us compensation,” he said.
Prominent agricultural economists say that the holiday is also harmful to livestock crops, so we are working on the dairy economy.
According to the National Dairy Development Board, India had 19.25 million cattle and 10.99 million buffaloes, making the bovine population 30.23 million.
