Yup, you read that correctly. A kite is defined as an ‘aircraft’ according to the Indian Aircraft Act of 1934.

So theoretically, for a young child to enjoy flying a kite he or she would need the same permissions, and need to go through the same paperwork to fly an aircraft. Forget asking why this definition hasn’t been changed, more importantly, why was a kite defined as an aircraft in the first place?

And don’t think you can get away with balloons. Apparently, they’re aircraft too. Whether they’re“fixed or free” to float in the air.
