Slaughterhouse Crackdown results effect manufacturets of Cricket Balls

Sudden closing down of the shops have cause caios in the state and even the companies all over India
The crackdown on slaughterhouses in Uttar Pradesh may have an unexpected result on the cricket balls, which are manufactured using cow skin.  With supply of cow leather drying up, cricket balls are expected to become more expensive.

The recent order given by Yogi Aditynath on the Ban of slaughter houses may have an adverse effect on the
 You may have to shell out extra money for a pair of Kolhapuri chappals or a fancy leather handbag if the ban on illegal slaughterhouses in Uttar Pradesh continues and if other states decide to follow suit.

The recent order given by Yogi Aditynath on the Ban of slaughter houses may have an adverse effect on the manufactures of red balls (cricket balls).
Effect was immediate but reality seen here on the ban has gone bizzare all over India , after an year discussion over ban of slauhter houses finally it came into effect in the month of march.

From car upholstery to ladies’ purses, it is mainly buffalo hide that is used. The mass closure of slaughterhouses in Uttar Pradesh has not only left many people in the meat business jobless but is threatening to affect the livelihood of tens of thousands of others associated with auxiliary sectors relying on meat and by-products in other states as well.
Now, the reduced supply of cow leather is likely to result in the increased import of cow skin, resulting in hije in the cricket balls. local manufacturers in Meerut and Jallandhar said they were getting cow leather from states such as Kerala, West Bengal, Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Sikkim and Tripura, where cow slaughter is still not banned, while bigger companies import it from Switzerland, England and Australia.

They will have to import more. This would mean that the cost of manufacturing will go up by at-least 25 to 30 per cent. Small manufacturers will be worst hit as they don’t have the finance to import the skin. This would mean that they will have to depend on bigger conpanies or importers for raw material.
When cattle are old enough, they’re sent to slaughter and their meat is processed and shipped to stores, with which the cricket balls are made.

Cricket ball manufacturing companies that made use of illegal leather are facing the shortage of leather, which has led to a rapid rise in the cost of the cricket balls.


The cricket ball manufacturing industries depend on the leather that they receive from states where cow slaughter is not illegal. But recently, there has been some worries among traders due the recent incidents against slaughter and this has led to increasing the price of cowhide
