New Delhi: The two-day Drone Festival 2022 has begun at Pragati Maidan in Delhi, which has been inaugurated by PM Narendra Modi himself. In this festival, which started with the dream of making India a drone hub by the year 2030, make in India has also put up an exhibition of drones.
There is a special reason behind drones being seen as a revolution, since then parcel delivery has been made much easier and more convenient. An example of this has been found in Lok Sabha MP Devu Singh Chauhan's latest Koo post. When he also posted photo-sharing information of successful drug delivery through drones, he wrote, "As the country celebrated #DroneMahotsav2022, the Department of Posts successfully conducted a pilot test for delivery of parcels through drones in Kutch, Gujarat. The drone successfully delivered the drug parcel covering an aerial distance of 46 km in 30 minutes. "
You will be surprised to know that until some time ago, India, who is completely dependent on imports for drones, is rapidly taking steps towards self-reliance in this matter. In order to boost the domestic industry, it has also announced a ban on the import of drones in February. Now drone import is allowed only for R&D, Defence and Security. Clearance is also going to be necessary for them.
