The commuters on the roads in Jaipur city are facing immense problems due to the stray cattle that have become a big menace for residents of Walled City. 

For the last eight months since the lockdown, civic problems have increased all around the city especially after the division of Jaipur Municipal Corporation into Greater and Heritage.

Residents of Jaipur Municipal Corporation Heritage are facing immense difficulty due to stray cattle. In places like Chandpol Gate, Govind Devji temple, and near Chaughan stadium around five to 10 cattle can be seen on road.

Vikas Kothari, a resident of the Walled City area, said that for the past couple of months this problem has increased. “On every corner of the city, stray cattle can be seen blocking the traffic and roads. We have to be careful while crossing the road,” said Kothari.

One of the reasons for these cattle is the presence of illegal dairies in the Walled City areas. According to rules, no one is allowed to keep more than one cow in the city, or else it will be considered as dairy. There are many illegal dairies being functioning inside the Walled City areas selling milk and owners are the ones responsible to set their cattle loose in the street. Authorities have done little to shift these dairies to the city outskirts despite various court orders.
