"Ban on sale of cattle for slaughter rule does not apply to Goa as there are no cattle markets in the state," Parrikar told ANI.
Earlier, the Supreme Court issued a notice to the Centre on the plea challenging the notification banning sale and purchase of cattle at animal markets for slaughter.
The Supreme Court has given the Centre two weeks to file its response and posted the matter for hearing on July 11.
The Supreme Court, however, has not put a stay on the Centre's notification as of now.
The Centre told the court that its intention was "to create a regulatory regime all over the country" and that it would file a detailed reply.
