Guj HC quashed govt’s ban on livestock export

The Gujarat high court on 1st April quashed the state government’s diktat prohibiting export of livestock from Kutch’s Tuna port. A division bench of Justice Harsha Devani and Justice Bhargav Karia junked the state government’s notification issued on December 14 banning the export of livestock from Gujarat shores. The HC trashed the notification in response to a petition filed by exporters.

The HC also rejected state government’s request to stay its order and to allow operation of its prohibiting orders for six weeks so that it could approach the Supreme Court. The exporters had challenged the government’s notification on the ground that it was in violation of the country’s export-import policy. Tuna is the only port, which is governed by the Deen Dayal Upadhyay Port Trust, Kandla, and from where livestock is exported.
