HC Stays ‘One Family, One Dog’ Order and Asks Owners to Get Their Pets Registered

The Punjab and Haryana High Court canceled the ‘one family, one dog norm’ order and asked the dog owners to register their pets after a victim who suffered a dog bite approached the court to seek a settlement.

On Wednesday, the Punjab and Haryana High Court stayed a Gurugram consumer panel order asking the citizens to maintain the one-family dog norm.

When a dog bite victim approached the court to seek compensation, the directions came out. In November, a consumer court ordered the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram to take into custody all stray dogs and put them in pounds.

The court has also mandated dog owners to register their pets and leash them while taking them out in public places. They have also been asked to ensure the dog does not bite anyone, besides carrying eco-friendly disposable bags for scooping the dog’s shit.

The court, while hearing the case, said that the orders passed by the consumer Court were above the scope of the consumer protection act 2019.

The district consumer disputes redressal commission, Gurugram, on November 15, banned nearly a dozen breeds of foreign dogs.

In addition, the commission had asked the people to keep just one dog, for which they were asked to pay an annual fee of Rs 12,000. The municipal corporation authorities were also asked to arrange dog pounds to keep the stray dogs.
