We are living in a developing country that is growing really fast in all directions like culture, leadership, and most importantly technology. We are taking new highs in terms of innovation and technology. Drones are not a new technology for the world but they do not have any serious background in India. It is still a developing technology that creates a new market in innovation and technology. There are so many technical and mechanical engineers in India who are working on drone technology and innovating it day by day. When the drones were discovered, they were very heavy and big in terms of size and shape but now drones are way lighter and smaller in size. But when we see a drone flying, we don’t think who manufactured this drone? For that, we have to know who regulates the rules and regulations of drone manufacturing in India.
DGCA means directorate general of civil aviation, government of India control and regulates the drone manufacturing and working in India. Recently DGCA launched a new online platform which is known as the digital sky. This agency manages all the drone (unmanned Arial devices) activities in India. Since the government of India launched this platform, the process for drone registration becomes much easier than before. This organization has introduced some laws and policies regarding the use of drone technology in India. This organization suggested maximizing the use of drone technology for commercial purposes. The government of India updated and revised the rules and regulations for unmanned aircraft in the year 2019.
This step was taken to prevent the flying and manufacturing of unauthorized (unmanned aircraft) drones in Indian airspace. This organization also regulates the architecture of UAs and develops common scalable standards. The government of India adopted the NPNT process for regulated the drone-related management system. NPNT process refers to “no permission no take-off’. This process of NPNT controls the drones through an unmanned traffic management system (UTM). The unmanned traffic management (UTM) system was developed on the requirement bases of civil aviation. These requirements like registration, flight plan, purpose, and permits are included in the unmanned traffic management system.
