Ahmedabad police have issues a notification designating the city a "no-drone zone" during the India-Pakistan ICC World Cup Cricket Match at Narendra Modi Stadium on October 14, 2023, Times of India reported on Thursday.

Ahmedabad police commissioner GS Malik banned the operation of drones, quadcopters, powered aircraft, microlight aircraft, hang gliders, paragliders, paramotors, hot air balloons, and parachuting on October 14, due to the high-profile nature of the World Cup match between the two countries, the notification issued on Wednesday read.

The notification said that terrorist organizations or antisocial elements may pose threats to cricketers, dignitaries and spectators by using small aircraft or drones during the match and hence as a precautionary major all drone-flying and related activities are banned in the city during the match.

However, the notification exempted police, security agencies, Gujarat Cricket Association and Board of Control of Cricket in India from the ban list.
