Aviation Ministry Set To Issue Draft Regulations For Use Of UAVs

The Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA) is likely to frame guidelines for the use of drones / unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) by civilians, on Wednesday. Union Minister for Civil Aviation Ashok Gajapathy Raju on Wednesday spoke of the the new draft rules. “Time for some exciting action in the sky – we will issue draft regulations for use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (Drones) at 4:30 pm today”, the Minister tweeted.

In April 2016, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), which comes under the Civil Aviation Ministry, had proposed detailed guidelines for civilian use of drones. Under those guidelines, drone users need to get permission and a unique number for each drone, along with security clearance from the Bureau of Civil Aviation. Read More…
