Aadhaar

New Delhi:

Like the 12-digit Aadhaar number for every Indian, the central government is planning to spend Rs 50 crore to assign a unique Aadhaar-like IDs or UID to each of the country’s milk-producing cow. The scheme for linking Aadhaar card to cows was first proposed in the year 2015.

As per the reports, this scheme will be implemented by the Agriculture Ministry. As a part of the scheme in the first schedule, the government will spend 5o crores to cover about 40 million cows. The programme is also known as  Pashu Sanjivini and which was launched under the National Mission on Bovine Productivity.

A dairy department official said to implement the scheme the agriculture ministry has already developed a unique ID technology. The technology is cheap and comes with a tamper-proof polyurethane tag which will have the biological details about the cow such as breed, age, sex, height and special body marks.

The cost of each card will be Rs. 8-10. The Pashu Sanjivni programme is a larger project in the sectors like dairy and fisheries.

The reason behind the project:

The main aim of launching this project is to help the farmers by increasing the production of cattle’s milk and to prevent cattle trafficking.  Setting 2022 as a benchmark to increase farmers’ income. Economists saying that it is not possible for the farmers to achieve the sufficient income because they work on small parcels of land.

In the Union Budget for 2018- 2019 finance minister Arun Jaitley has annunced that many funds released s to develop infrastructure for animal husbandry, fisheries and aquaculture, apart from an artificial insemination drive to improve cattle breeds, to “upgrade” the nation’s cattle population.

About Rs10,000 crore fund for  Fisheries and Aquaculture Infrastructure Development and an Animal Husbandry Infrastructure Development. About Rs200 crore for an artificial insemination drive to improve cattle breeds.

Irrfan Khan

51-year-old actor Irrfan Khan has revealed about his health condition. Few days ago he told that he is suffering from a rare disease. He said that he has been diagnosed with a rare disease called a neuroendocrine tumour. He wrote on Twitter soon he will share the details about the disease.

Earlier this month Irrfan Khan tweeted about his disease and said he is going out of the country for the treatment. He requesting all his fans to continue sending their wishes. NEURO is not always about the brain it is not easy to search for the disease and to know about the disease on google.

Irrfan begins his statement with a quote by Margaret Mitchell — “Life is under no obligation to give us what we expect.  “The unexpected makes us grow, which is what the past few days have been about.  Learning that I have been diagnosed with NeuroEndrocine Tumour as of now has admittedly been difficult, but the love and strength of those around me and that I found within me has brought me to a place of hope.

The journey of this is taking me out of the country, and I request everyone to continue sending their wishes. As of the rumours that were floated NEURO is not always about the brain and googling is the easiest way to do research.  To those who waited for my words, I hope to be back with more stories to tell.”

Irrfan Khan tweeted on March 5 “Sometimes you wake up with a jolt with life-shaking you up. The last fifteen days, my life has been a suspense story. Little had I known that my search for rare stories would make me find a rare disease,” I have never given up and have always fought for my choices and always will.

My family and friends are with me and we are working it out the best way possible. In trying time, please don’t speculate as I will myself share with you my story within a week – ten days when the further investigations come with a conclusive diagnosis. Till then wish the best for me.
