Written By Gautham Krishna   | Published on August 15, 2019

Pashu Aadhaar is being introduced with the aim of enhancing traceability of livestock and their products, such as milk or meat. This will help farmers and animal husbandry officials devise better strategies to manage livestock in the country.

Pashu Aadhaar

Just like Aadhaar cards, Pashu Aadhaar will also assign a unique identification number to each animal, alongside a host of other related data that will help in managing the country’s vast livestock resources. Pashu Aadhaar is being touted as the world’s largest existing database of animals.

Issuing Authority

Pashu Aadhaar, also known as the Information Network for Animal Productivity and Health (INAPH), is being developed by the National Dairy Development Board (NDDB). If implemented successfully, INAPH will be the world's largest database of animals.


Pashu Aadhaar is being developed to track the population of livestock in India. Every animal will be provided with an ear tag that would contain its own 12-digit UID. Pashu Aadhaar will contain data on the bovines’ species, breed, pedigree, and information related to calving, milk production, and vaccination.
