To fly a kite you must obtain a ‘Permit’

Flying a kite without police permission is against the Aircraft Act of 1934.  This Law describes an aircraft as any machine that can rely on the reaction of the air for support. Planes, aircraft, kites, hot air balloons, and spacecraft all fall into this category. As a consequence, flying a kite without a permit is illegal, and violating the law could result in a fine of Rs 10 lakh and a sentence of up to two years imprisonment.
