The Bengaluru civic body on Friday ordered closure of meat stalls, non-vegetarian hotels and restaurants from January 30 to February 20 in view of the Aero India show. The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), in its public notice, has said that serving and selling non-vegetarian dishes will be banned within 10 km radius of Yelahanka Air Force Station. Aero India show will run from 13 to 17 February.

The ban will remain in place from January 30 to February 20

BBMP said that from January 30 to February 20 at Air Force Station, Yelahanka, it is to the notice of general public, owners of meat stalls, non-vegetarian hotels and restaurants that all meat/chicken/fish shops should be closed and serving/selling of non-vegetarian dishes should be banned within 10 km radius. Any violation of this would be punishable under BBMP Act-2020 and Rule 91 of the Indian Aircraft Rules 1937.

Why was this decision taken?

According to BBMP officials, the decision was taken because non-vegetarian food in public places leads to freezing of birds that fly around in the air carrying pieces of meat. Therefore, during the Air India show, many aircraft will show their skills in the air, so birds can collide with them, which will increase the possibility of an accident.
