Indian Made Drones Will Soon Fly In The Skies As DGCA Gives Manufacturing Nod To 2 Bengaluru Companies

India’s Civil Aviation Regulator, Directorate General of Civil Aviation, has permitted two Bangalore Based Startups, SkyLark Drones and Throttle Aerospace Systems to manufacture drones under the New Digital Sky Policy.
The government recently came up with Digital Sky Policy (December 2018) as a single-window platform for drone companies to take permissions and get quick approvals for flight operations, registration and management. This step is expected to benefit the services of enterprises running large fleets of drones for air surveys and food-delivery.
For drone manufacturers, DGCA has put out the requirements relating to software identification of drones, the NPNT system, flight logs, and other criteria. However, the regulator is facing a challenge with creating a system to check the hardware and software capabilities of drones to certify them as airworthy. 
While drones have emerged as the next phase of technology, safety and privacy issues have encourage d the government to regulate their use.
The two startups- SkyLark Drones and Throttle Aerospace Systems, have the first-ever certification by the DGCA. The operators have to get digital permission from the DGCA, and the drones will, after that, be allowed to take off.
