The order thus reads, "During high flood season, the wild animals of the Kaziranga National Park have a natural tendency to migrate for shelter towards the Karbi Anglong Hills thereby crossing NH-37. While migrating, there is a likelihood of wild animals falling prey to the hands of miscreants or meeting with accidents that may put the lives of passengers as well as wild animals at risk. There are sufficient grounds to regulate the speed of the vehicles and impose restrictions in the scheduled area, so as to protect human lives and wild animals, do hereby impose restrictions in the exercise of the powers conferred U/S 144 Cr. P.C.".

Neha Yadav gave the directions that none of the transport will be proceeding 40 KM and above speed, none of the vehicles will be permitted to a standstill in the NH 37 that would obstruct the path for safe crossing of the wild animals, birds and reptiles during migration, harms shouldn't be intended to them, birds or reptiles etc. taking rest in the NH 37 way and no harmful equipment will be allowed to carry inside or outside the national park.
