Current Drone Operations



I’ve a few questions related to current drone operations.

  1. How far have we come along in the process of gaining the ability to fly a drone?
  2. I’m unable to apply for a RPA through the Digital Sky website due to lack of registered manufacturers, what is causing the delay and when will that change?
  3. Are drone operations still allowed based on some provisional permission?
  4. Do we have a documented process on how to seek provisional permission(from local police, civil aviation) for flying drones until the time the infrastructure is established and operational?
  5. What are the current drone service providers in India doing in terms of providing service since infrastructure is still being developed?

I apologize for the naive questions, I’m just catching up.

Thank you for everything this community is doing, appreciate the work.
