Govt Of India Exports Rs.113 Crores Of Beef To Pakistan in Last 3 Years While Modi Govt. Sets for Complete Beef Ban For its Citizens

The country’s government is of its kind. Speaks of something and then does the exact opposite, and trust me this has happened more than once!

According to the data on Ministry of Commerce (Government of India), India has exported large quantity of beef to the neighboring countries in South Asia. The data further reports that India has exported Rs.113.10 crores of Beef to Pakistan.

Modi government, on the other hand, is looking forward to a complete ban on beef including buffalo across India while the government itself is exporting tons / kgs of buffalo meat to our neighboring countries.

Brazil and India have been competing for the top spot in world beef exports for quite a few years now. In 2014, according to United States Department of Agriculture data, India extricated Brazil from the number 1 slot. The latest data from 2016 shows India and Brazil standing tall on the top — with both countries accounting for just under 20% each of the world’s total beef exports. These two, along with Australia and New Zealand, are the world’s largest beef exporting countries, as per the US data.

An important point to be noted here is that India does not officially export the meat of cows. The so-called “beef” that it exports is buffalo meat, which is also known as “carabeef”. The United States “beef” data includes carabeef. The bulk of India’s buffalo meat exports are to Asian countries — 11 of the top 15 destinations for buffalo meat by value in 2015-16 were in Asia and 3 in Africa (Algeria, Egypt, and Angola). Russia was the 15th destination — at No. 15 in the list of the top 15.

Lower prices, along with the proximity to key consuming markets in Southeast Asia and West Asia, has imparted a huge competitive edge to Indian buffalo meat exports in recent years.

As a result, between 2009 and 2014, India’s beef exports more than increased from around 0.6 million tonnes to over 2 million tonnes in carcass weight equivalent terms. In value terms, shipments more than quadrupled from $ 1,163.54 million in 2009-10 (April-March) to $ 4,781.18 million in 2014-15. In the process, beef also become India’s No. 1 agri-export item, ahead of basmati rice ($ 4,518.25 million)
