Online registration for drone operation starts

Mumbai: Civil Aviation Ministry announced Saturday it has started the registration process for drone operators in the country, to be done through a portal called 'Digital Sky'.
The government, in August, had put in place regulations for operations of remotely piloted aircraft, to come into effect from December 1.
Under these norms, drone users will be required to do one-time registration of their drones. They will also need to register the pilots of drones as well as their owners.
"Happy to announce that we are launching the Online Registration Portal for #Drone Flying Permission, #DigitalSky from TODAY. The platform is now live," Civil Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu said in a tweet.
For drones of micro size and above categories, operators are required to register on the Digital Sky portal, he said in another tweet.
Nano drones can start flying legally from Saturday, the ministry said in a release later.
It also said the digital platform has begun accepting registrations of users, and payments for Unmanned Aerial Operator's Permit (UAOP) and Unique Identification Numbers (UIN) will be accepted through the Bharat Kosh portal (bharatkosh.gov.in).
