The government will ban all vaccines for animal and birds, and make the products available only through private distributors, the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention said on Friday.
The move follows a public backlash against the controversial vaccines in the country, which the government has promised to tackle.
The government has already suspended the import of several popular veterinary vaccines and restricted exports to several states.
The vaccines have been available only in the last three years.
In a statement, the CDC said the move was aimed at addressing public health threats caused by the animal and plant vaccines.
The CDC has been working on a nationwide ban of all animal-specific vaccines in India, the statement said.
It said that this ban would be enforced by a “coordinated and comprehensive regulatory framework” that would also include the National Veterinary Vaccination Policy, the Indian Veterinary Authority and the Centre of Veterinary Science.
