Aero India 2023: Ban on Sale of Non-veg Food near Air Force Station

  • In anticipation of Aero India 2023, the Bengaluru local government has ordered the closure of meat stands, non-vegetarian hotels, and restaurants.
  • The prohibition was put in place because non-vegetarian food left out in the open attracts scavenging birds, which could cause accidents in mid-air, according to local body authorities.
  • The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has put a ban on the sale and serving of beef within a radius of 10 kilometres of Yelahanka’s Air Force Station in anticipation of “Aero India 2023,” which will be held in Silicon City Bengaluru.
  • The choice was made because the non-vegetarian food left out in public places draws a lot of scavenger birds, particularly kites, who might cause accidents in mid-air.
  • Air Force Station Yelahanka in Bengaluru will host the 14th iteration of “Aero India 2023” from February 13 to 17.
  • From January 30 to February 20 in the vicinity of the venue, the Bengaluru local authority has ordered the closure of meat stands, non-vegetarian hotels, and restaurants.
