Government has granted private players permission to use drones for delivery

Share via:

The government informed the Rajya Sabha that private players are free to use drones for delivery purposes as long as they follow the Drone Rules, 2021.

In response to a question, General (Retd) VK Singh, Minister of State (MoS) for Civil Aviation, stated that the government is already utilising the services of drone players for a variety of purposes, including vaccine delivery, inspection of oil pipelines and power transmission lines, and agricultural spraying, among others. Authorities have also used drones to survey mines and map land under the Centre’s ambitious Survey of Villages Abadi & Mapping with Improvised Technology in Village Areas (SVAMITVA) scheme.
