      Mumbai: After much controversy, the BMC on Wednesday approved a proposal to appoint the animal welfare society as one of the NGOs in charge of sterilising over 5 lakh stray dogs in Mumbai.

          The civic standing committee approved the proposal for allotting 50,000 square feet of land to the animal welfare society on “caretaker basis’’ for 11 months to implement the dog-sterilisation programme. The other two NGOs that have agreed to the conditions of the BMC including V team, Thane and Royal Veterinerian, Nagpur will be approved, said members.

          The land that has been allotted to the animal welfare society is reserved for cemetery at Juhu Kapaswadi, Andheri West. The proposal aims at sterilisation and immunisation of stray dogs under the Dog Control Programme. At the rate of Rs 600 per dog, 100 dogs will be sterilised per day for approximately 315 days.

          However some corporators took objection to the BMC leasing a huge tract of land away at the price of Re 1 per month. “The land needs to be given at market price according to 92 (CC) of MMC Act,’’ said corporator of Goregaon Samir Desai.
