The National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) of the Union environment and forests ministry will undertake test flights of unmanned aerial vehicles over the KNP from Monday.
In 2012, poachers killed 39 rhinos and removed their horns, and in 2013, the casualty figure is 16 so far. The KNP has the world's highest population of one-horned rhinoceros.
According to the last census in Kaziranga in March this year, there are 2,329 rhinos there.
The KNP is a world heritage site, designated by the United National Educational Scientific and Cultural Organisation (Unesco).With inputs from PTI
