All you need to know about India's Drone Regulations 1.0
Updated : August 28, 2018 02:40 PM IST
The UTM operates as a traffic regulator in the drone airspace and coordinates closely with the defense and civilian air traffic controllers (ATCs) to ensure that drones remain on the approved flight paths.
Unmanned Aircraft Operator Permit (UAOP) has to be obtained from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) which will be valid for five years, however not transferrable.
The policy specifies that the drone can be operated by an individual who is over 18 years of age, has passed matriculation with English and has undergone ground/ practical training as approved by DGCA.
