Government developing a framework for drone procurement

Share via:

With the Indian government’s growing emphasis on drone startups, a procurement framework for the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) is being developed. The framework’s primary focus is on commercial drone applications.

The framework’s purpose is to allow public sector enterprises to decide whether to buy drones as equipment or use them as a service. According to the report, which cited a source, there could be an impact on overall output, including data collection, if procurement is not clarified. The government is in discussions with relevant stakeholders about the framework. Several ministries, including road, transport and highways, railways, agriculture and panchayati raj, and NITI Aayog, have held discussions with the Drones Federation of India to determine quality parameters for large-scale drone use.
