Dronetech startup Garuda Aerospace received type certification and RPTO approval from Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) for its Kisan drones.
Garuda announced that after receiving type certification for the GA-AG drone model, it is now eligible for an INR 10 Lakh unsecured loan at 5% interest from the Centre’s agri infrastructure fund. It can also benefit from the Centre’s 50-100% subsidy. Earlier this year, Reliance-backed Asteria Aerospace and Adani-backed General Aeronautics received type certification from the DGCA for their drone manufacturers. Garuda plans to build 5000 drones in the next five months and train 1 lakh drone pilots in the next two years.
