Your pet must be kept on a leash when going for walks on the streets or in the park. As you will notice, there are no laws about cleaning up after your pet on the street, so watch your step! Within park grounds, however, you do need to clean up after your pet.


Dogs must be registered and licensed.

For a first-time licence, there is a Rs 100 charge for every year of a dog’s life. To register a two-year old dog, for example, you will pay 200 for the license and Rs 100 annually for each year of the dog's life. There is also a one-time fee of Rs 50 for the licence book.
