Many non-government organisations have also made preparations to rescue birds. Volunteers have been deployed.
The Rajasthan government has already put a ban on kite flying for two hours in the morning and two hours in the evening. The ban has been imposed in compliance with a Rajasthan High Court order. The movement of birds is the most during these hours. However, it is unlikely that people will comly with these orders.
