Gujarat's new drone policy aims to create 25,000 jobs

New Delhi: The Gujarat government has announced a new 'Drone Promotion and Usage Policy' to promote the utilisation of drones by increasing their commercial use by government and private bodies, and also make it safer through regulations.

The new drone policy also aims to create 25,000 jobs in Gujarat's drone sector.

Pilots, co-pilots, users, and manufacturers will need to complete registration on the 'Sky Platform' after which they will get a dentification number and a demarcation area to operate drones in from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).

The plan is for different departments of the Gujarat government to carry out tasks using drones, such as monitoring vehicle emissions or even counting lions in Gujarat forests.

The aim is to use the developing drone technology to fulfil challenges and tasks better and hence, become more efficient in leveraging the existing governance mechanism.

The departments would need to inform in advance their targets and the cases where they would be using drones.
