The court was hearing a petition against the closure of slaughterhouses in the state after the Yogi Adityanath government ascended to power in the state on March 19.
The high court also directed the departments concerned of the state government to renew the licences of slaughterhouses and also issue licences based on the prescribed guidelines.
The court also observed that the responsibility of constructing slaughterhouses was of the local municipal corporations.
The court has also asked all departments relevant to the issue to come before it with information on the matter on July 17.
