Flipkart, Amazon will consider drone delivery in India: Reports

Flipkart , Amazon will consider drone delivery in India

Companies like Amazon and Flipkart will soon be able to use drones to deliver packages in India, because the Ministry of Aviation uncovered a proposed policy to allow commercial use of these unmanned aerial vehicles.

Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) on Wednesday invited public comments on draft rules on the use of the drones, which include business objectives, which are expected to finalize by the end of the year by the aviation regulator. The drone is classified under five categories based on its weight. "Aviation Avionics is on the rising edge of technology in software; India will actually benefit from the opening of the drone industry for experimentation and innovation," Sinha said.

A few years ago, a drone had been used to deliver a packet to a location at a multi-storeyed building Mumbai. The local police, however, described it as an unauthorised flight in violation of rules.

Nano drones will not require any permit

Minister of state Sinha said: “With this policy, we opened the door for experimentation and innovation in India.“

According to the draft, drones in nano category -weighing up to 250 grams -and those operated by government agencies would not require any permit.




“Not having a regulation was amounting to a total ban. So, we needed to have a policy,” aviation minister Raju said. “Probably, within a month, we will get a lot of suggestion and the final policy should reflect all of it.” 

Minister of state Sinha said: “With this policy, we opened the door for experimentation and innovation in India.”
