378.     Eradication areas.

The appropriate authority1 may make orders declaring eradication areas for cattle for any particular disease when it is satisfied that a substantial majority of the cattle therein are free from the disease2, and declaring attested areas when it is satisfied that the disease is for practical purposes non-existent3. It may also make orders prohibiting and regulating the movement of cattle into, out of or within such areas or, if the area is eradication or attested area for brucellosis, imposing necessary restrictions there for the purpose of eradicating that disease4.
