Jaipur: JMC doesn’t have enough vehicles to catch stray animals | Jaipur News


JAIPUR: Following relaxations in lockdown rules, number of stray cattle has increased in the city due to lack of Jaipur Municipal Corporation (JMC) vehicles that catch sych strays.
At present, JMC has just two vehicles to catch stray cattle from the city instead of 15. Residents have been filing complaints, but no step has been taken.
Devendra Shunty, a resident of Raja Park, said there has been a rise of stray cattle in the area. “Since lockdown, stray cattle can be seen everywhere. I understand that in complete lockdown it was difficult to take care of this problem but now it should be done efficiently,” said Shunty.
According to JMC officials, it has been more than a year when the contract to catch stray cattle expired. “There was no tender invited neither any one is temporarily working. We have appointed JMC sanitation workers. They do their work as much as they can with limited resources,” said a JMC official.
Vehicles needed to catch stray cattle usually have lifts and ramps. JMC has four vehicles but two are not functioning properly.
“Sometimes, we get many calls from different parts of the city but due to lack of vehicles we are not able to resolve the problem. Recently, JMC hired four vehicles on contract for this work and when their contract got over, we are back to the same condition. We have written it to higher authorities to either procure more vehicles or get more on contract,” said an official anonymously.
