The penalty until now was Rs. 50,000 with an imprisonment of 7 years. Gujrat Chief Minister, Vijay Rupani, and his government are also thinking about introducing a bill to save cows. This amendment has been made after Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Yogi Adityanath, ordered an elimination of illegal slaughterhouses in the State.
