Speaking to Hindustan Times, Niraj Shukla, Nagar Nigam Commissioner of Ayodhya

We are in the process of getting the cow coats made. This scheme will be implemented in three-four phases. First we are starting with Baishingpur cow shelter, which houses around 1,200 cattle including 700 bulls and the rest being cows and calves. We have initially placed order for 100 cow coats for the calves.

He further stated that the first delivery will be arriving by the end of November and each cow coat would cost Rs 250-300.

Three-layer coats for the calves are being prepared. We have asked for the use of soft clothes for the calves in the innermost layer apart from the jute which provides warmth to the body.

He also said that the coats will be designed differently for bulls and cows. The cow shelters are also expected to have bonfire to save them for extreme cold.
