The Gujarat government announced its policy on ‘drone promotion and usage’ on Wednesday.
Gujarat’s police force currently operates a fleet of drones for law enforcement purposes.
Drones were extensively used during the recent Rath Yatra. Not only this, the Industries and Mines Department has also launched ‘Trinetra’ drones to control illegal mining activities.
Considering the vast potential and scale of drones’ global reach, the Gujarat government has announced this policy for the promotion and use of drones.
Along with making such services more accessible to the public, the state government has also announced the approach of creating new opportunities for job creation through the drone ecosystem in this ‘Drone Promotion and Uses Policy’.
