Chandigarh bans sale, use of Chinese kite string

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, December 21

The UT Administration has banned the procurement, sale and use of “Chinese maanjha/pakka dori” for kite flying in the city.

In an order, District Magistrate Mandip Singh Brar said: “A large number of people flying kites use synthetic/nylon glass-coated thread, popularly known as ‘pakka thread/dori’ or ‘Chinese maanjha/dori’. Made of synthetic material, these are non-biodegradable and cause serious injuries to human beings, birds and are equally disadvantageous to the wildlife and environment.”

“Chinese maanjhas’ or such other harmful substances for kite-flying are banned in Chandigarh for 60 days,” the District Magistrate said.

The ban would come into force with immediate effect and would be effective till February 18, 2021. Any breach of the order would invite action.
