Using innovation , India style

Cows are revered as sacred among Hindus and are protected by law. Some 40,000 cows are thought to be roaming the streets of Delhi, posing a serious traffic hazard.

The authorities in the Indian capital have turned to RFID microchips to tackle the growing problem of stray cows roaming the streets.



A court had earlier ordered authorities in south Delhi to offer a reward of $45 to anyone delivering a stray cow. The authorities then sell the cow to a new owner but they are concerned people might take advantage by bringing back the same cow for quick money.

A $11 microchip in the cow's gut will now allow resident welfare associations to determine whether the cow brought to the authorities was a stray one or not. [Via BBC and this]
