Task force on drones to submit recommendations soon
The Civil Aviation Ministry Wednesday said final recommendations of the task force on drones are expected soon.
In April, the government set up a 13-member task force, headed by Minister of State for Civil Aviation Jayant Sinha, to prepare a road map for the implementation of unmanned aerial vehicle technology.
"HMoSCA @jayantsinha chaired a meeting of the drone task-force: the final recommendations are expected soon. This report will help shape India's Drone Regulations 2.0," the ministry said in a tweet.
In August, the ministry came out with norms for civilian use of drones.
The task force is to develop a roadmap with implementable recommendations for central as well as state governments, industry and research institutions.
The committee would prepare a roadmap, including "outcomes, timelines, implementation & review mechanism and measurable metrics" for the implementation of UAV technology. Besides, the role of the industry would be clearly delineated, an official release had said in April.
