Aviation: Delivery Of Goods By Drones To Boost Logistics Capabilities, Says Jayant Sinha


Delivery and pick up of goods by drones will boost logistic capabilities in the country, Union Minister Jayant Sinha said Tuesday. Flying of drones for civilian purposes would be legal from December 1. “E-commerce has already tasted success in India. Delivery & pick up of goods by drones will boost logistic capabilities & the viability of many-to-many commerce.

“Facilitating drone delivery will need developing an entirely new logistics support system,” the Civil Aviation Ministry said in a series of tweets quoting Sinha.

Sinha is the Minister of State for Civil Aviation.

According to him, drafting of the drone regulations through Civil Aviation Requirement (CAR) has taken long time “due to rapidly evolving drone, many countries are in trial mode with drone regulations, no ICAO ethics have been settled & India’s security environment requires extra precautions”.

ICAO is the UN aviation watchdog.

The vital aspect of regulatory rule-making process is to allow safe zones for experimentation in cases of fast-evolving new technologies, the minister said. Read More
