Conducive policy framework, funding incentive and demand structure for Drones: Scindia

Addressing the session on Drones for Public Good - Mass Awareness Program, jointly organized by FICCI and DFI in collaboration with the World Economic Forum, Jyotiraditya Scindia, Minister of Civil Aviation said that the government is working as an enabler, and not a regulator, looking at a new approach of evidence-based policymaking for drones. He said technology promotion is crucial and drone technology will bring those living at the margins to the centre of development. “Drones play a crucial role in connecting the people from the length and breadth of the country,” he said.

The new drone rules, accompanied at a very short period with the PLI scheme for drones, gives the nascent industry of domestic manufacturing a huge boost. “A 40 per cent value addition threshold for the sector gives a unique advantage to get off to a flying start,” said Scindia.

He further mentioned that for any technology to succeed it requires three steps- policy structure, funding incentive and demand structure. The Indian Government, he further stated, under the Svamitva (Survey of Villages and Mapping with Improvised Technology in Village Areas) scheme plans to use drones to map thousands of villages which will give India’s drone industry a massive boost.
