Punjab Government Plans To Amend Kite Flying Ordinance

June 29, 2024Zayn0

The Kite Flying Prohibition Ordinance 2001 has been amended by the Punjab provincial government in an effort to curtail the practice of kite flying. According to official sources who spoke with APP, the Punjab Law Department consulted with the Standing Committee on Law before sending a draft to the Chief Minister’s office in this regard.

Recommendations for Modifications

Official sources state that the Standing Committee on Law was consulted while the Punjab Law Department formulated the ordinance’s revisions. The proposed modifications seek to strengthen the legal framework and apply harsher sanctions to individuals who engage in kite-flying activities.

Tougher Penalties for Those Who Make Kites

The proposed revisions call for tougher penalties for those who manufacture kites. Kite producers might be fined up to five lakh rupees and imprisoned for six months to three years under the new rules.

Penalties for Children and the Role of Parents

The inclusion of kids in kite flying is another topic covered by the suggested modifications. Children found flying kites will be fined under the modified ordinance. In addition, it has been suggested that the parents of these kids be disciplined in order to make them responsible for the behavior of their kids.

Justification Reasons for the Amendments

The objective of the proposed revisions, according to Provincial Law Minister Malik Sohaib Ahmed Bherth, is to ensure that the true benefactors of the kite-flying operations are held accountable by reducing the scope of punishment.

The government decided to make changes to the kite flying restrictions since the activity continues to raise safety issues and cause annoyance to the public. In the past, kite flying has been known to result in accidents that have proven fatal, disrupt power supplies, and cause injuries.

The province officials intend to limit the common practice of kite flying in Punjab by making it more difficult to produce and use kites by enforcing stricter penalties and improving the legal framework.

Conclusion

The proposed revisions to Punjab’s Kite Flying Prohibition Ordinance demonstrate the government’s steadfast dedication to resolving the ongoing problems brought on by the activity of kite flying. To stop this practice and protect public safety throughout the province, the authorities want to penalize kite producers, kids, and parents more severely.
