THE STATE-OF-THE-ART slaughterhouse slated to come up at Devguradia trenching ground has moved a step closer to fruition. The proposal is scheduled to come up for discussion at tomorrow’s Mayor-in-Council (MiC) budgetary meeting for the Health Department. The departmental budget is expected to hover around Rs 40 crore and health officials are learnt to have made the necessary allocations for constructing the abattoir.

Fifty per cent of the project costs will be borne by the Centre while the State Government and IMC will each pick up 25 per cent of the tab. If cleared by the mayoral council, the proposal will be sent to the Pollution Control Board (PCB), Airport Authority of India (AAI) Revenue Department and Indore Development Authority (IDA) for the necessary clearances.

The decision to build a modern zero-discharge slaughterhouse with in-house sewage treatment and effluent disposal plants comes in the wake of a Supreme Court deadline for modernising abattoirs across the country.

The proposed structure will boast a capacity of 200 buffaloes/500 goats everyday. The Corporation has received two bids for the project. One, submitted by a Mumbai-based firm, carries a price tag of Rs 12 crore while the other, patterned on the Central Leather Research Institute (CLRI) model recently adopted by Bhopal, is pegged at Rs 5 crore.

According to MiC member in-charge of Health Department Rajendra Rathore, the CLRI project calls for setting up a butchers’ market, residential structures as well as a leather processing unit within the slaughterhouse premises.
