UAV policy impetus
Finally, one can fly drones in India
Legally after December 1, 2018
After taking permission
And observing certain regulatory provisions,
As per the policy regulations
From the Office of Director General of Civil Aviation
Released in the last week of August.
UAVs get a push from the top echelon of the government
Which is also evident
When it constituted a 13-member task force on drones
Headed by minister of state for civil aviation.
The task force is expected to come up with a road map for drone operations.
The transition in the approach of the government
From reluctance to caution to facilitation
Is a welcome step not only for the users
But for the manufacturers as well.
