If you're a pet owner in Ludhiana, it is now mandatory for you to get your dogs and cats registered. The pet registration project was launched by the Ludhiana Municipal Corporation and has granted time until December 31st to residents to comply. Failure to register pets may entail a fine of Rs 4,000. Ludhiana is the first city in Punjab to initiate the project and a similar one for animal breeders and cattle is in the pipeline. The aim of the project is to trace owners with ease and ensure they take responsibility in case of any mishaps. Registered pets will be provided with a token, which they will have to wear around their necks.
