Gujarat state Bird HelpLine No. all district
Under its ‘Karuna Abhiyaan’ (Mercy Mission) Gujarat Government is determined to save the lives of birds who might sustain injuries during the ‘Uttrayan’ (Kite) festival to be celebrated all over the state between January 10 and 20, Chief Minister Mr. Vijaybhai Rupani asserted here today.
What are mutual funds?
Mutual fund is a financial instrument which pools the money of different people and invests them in stocks, bonds etc.
Each investor in a mutual fund scheme owns units of the fund, which represents a portion of the holdings of the scheme.
The securities are selected keeping in mind the investment objective of the scheme. Mutual funds are managed by asset management companies (AMCs).
The biggest advantage of investing in mutual funds versus stocks is risk diversification.
Every stock is subject to three types of risk: company risk, sector risk and market risk.
Company risk and sector risk are unsystematic risks, while market risk is known as systematic risk.
What is the essential difference between unsystematic and systematic risk?
The stock price of a company may fall if the company's financial performance is poor, even if the market rises.
On the other hand, even if the company performs well, the stock price may still fall, if the market falls.
Mutual funds help investors diversify unsystematic risks by investing in a diversified portfolio of stocks across different sectors.
The Chief Minister further stated that the government is taking every possible measure to protect lives and injuries being caused during the Kite Festival. Government is alert against the usage of ‘Chinese’ threads.
Mr. Rupani today visited the ‘Animal-Bird Health Rescue Care Center’ being run by the Forest Department in Ahmedabad and reviewed its preparedness. He said that more than 23,000 bird lives were saved under the Karuna Abhiyaan last year.

Each of these centers is being manned by a medical staff team, including doctors. Beside these, the centers are equipped with facilities like pre-operative, post-operative and ICU.
Beside these, 244 medical centers are being run by the NGOs. 46 animal ambulances, 500 veterinary doctors, 781 clinics, over 270 NGOs are participating in the Karuna Abhiyaan.
