Whoever is well versed with the KCI (Kennel Club of India) will be highly interested in the changes that are taking place towards the betterment of breeding practices. The Indian Kennel Gazette (IKG), which is the home publication of KCI has notified some updates in terms of registration charges.
The June 2014 issue, featuring the ever so popular Pug has the following public service notice in their ‘Editorial’ section:
“Those entering into any transaction with the Kennel Club of India pertaining to the registration of their dogs/pups are kindly requested to note that effective from 1st July 2014, the registration cost has been revised to Rs.450/- (up to 60 days) and Rs.675/- (upto 61-120 days). There would be no additional charges for Microchips and Microchips will be supplied free of cost along with registration resulting in a saving of Rs.45/- for every registration. The revised rates will come into effect from 1st July 2014.”
The existing registration rates were Rs.337/- (up to 60 days) and Rs.562 (upto 61-120 days). Microchip so far was not complimentary, instead it was priced at Rs.150/- + VAT (Rs.158/-)
IKG is a highly informative magazine which features a dog breed every month in a very detailed and descriptive manner. In addition to the multiple breed standards from the likes of AKC (American Kennel Club) and FCI (Federation Cynologique Internationale); they also present the temperament and health issues as well. Many famous and seasoned personalities from the dog breeding and showing fraternity are featured in the magazine and write guest posts from time to time.
The magazine costs a minor sum of INR 25/- per issue. The subscription options are 1 year (Rs 300/-) and 2 year (Rs. 550/-).
