Draft Drone Rules, 2021
The updated version of the draft Drone Rules, 2021 was released by the civil aviation ministry. It will replace the Unmanned Aircraft System Rules, 2021, which came into effect in March this year.
The draft rules ban drones without identification number, unless they are exempted by the government. The drone operators are required to obtain unique identification numbers for their drones by providing details on the digital sky platform, which was launched by the Centre to provide secure platform that supports drone technology frameworks. The digital sky platform will host interactive airspace map having green, yellow and red zones, each of which having specific rules.
