Directorate General of Civil Aviation
To ensure the safety of flight operations, the aviation regulatory body Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has established rules and guidelines for the management of potential wildlife threats at licensed airports.
Within ten kilometers of the aerodrome reference point, it is against the letter of Rule 91 of The Aircraft Rule 1937 to dispose of trash or kill animals that might attract wildlife.
Additionally, to prevent animal strikes at their particular aerodrome, aerodrome operators are required to put in place an efficient wildlife control strategy.
They must also recognize, manage, and reduce the danger that wildlife activities represent to aircraft operations by taking actions that will reduce the possibility of a collision between wildlife and aircraft.
