Last week, something exciting happened that many missed. India now has a more liberal and less fearful set of rules and regulations that will govern the use of drones
Safety features like 'No permission - no take-off', real-time tracking beacon, geo-fencing etc. to be notified in future. A six-month lead time will be provided for compliance.
Drone corridors will be developed for cargo deliveries and a drone promotion council will be set up to facilitate drone-friendly regulatory regime in the country, according to the draft rules.
