When it comes to technological advancement, the situation today is very different from that of ten years ago. Dubbed “drones” by the public, unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) have acquired popular acceptance in a range of businesses. Slowly but steadily, India is coming to terms with the implications of this technology. The Aatmanirbhar Bharat agenda, which promotes technological advancement, is now being supported by the government.
The Centre has also taken a number of initiatives to encourage the use of drone technology in India, including the SVAMITVA (Survey of Villages Abadi & Mapping with Improvised Technology in Village Areas) scheme, liberalization of drone rules, approval of the production-linked incentive (PLI) scheme for drones and drone components, the Hara Bhara campaign, the Gwalior Drone Mela, and the Kisan Drone Yatra.
