Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated Bharat Drone Mahotsav today in New Delhi. This two-day event will be held on May 27 and 28 at Pragati Maidan.

Bharat Drone Mahotsav-2022 is India’s biggest Drone Festival. More than 1600 delegates, including government officials, armed forces, foreign diplomats, and drone startups join the biggest drone festival.

The PMO released a statement which said over 70 exhibitors would display different uses of drones at the exhibition.

Many showcases like product launches and flying demonstrations are present at the drone festival. In addition to that, a Made in India Drone Taxi prototype will also be exhibited at the event.


The government of India aims to boost the indigenous demand for drone services in various vital fields. Earlier, civil aviation minister Jyotiraditya Scindia released unveiled two policies. One is Drone Shakti, and another is Kisan Drone.

Guidelines for using Kisan Drone have been revised. The minister said that there would be chances for a decrease in fees for drone pilot training courses in future due to an increase in commercial training.

While inaugurating the festival, PM Modi said that India would play a vital role in many sectors like agriculture, health, defence, disaster management etc.

He added that drone technology would be an effective tool to ease the lives of people. It helps improve various sectors and ensure the growth of small and marginalized farmers.

PM said that drones would play a vital role in the delivery of medicines and vaccines to various areas of the country.

In this regard, Modi appreciated the use of drones in the PM-SVAMITVA scheme. Around 65 lakh property cards have been generated easily using drones.

Drones are also used in the digital mapping of various properties in the villages of the country. Thus, the scheme increased transparency due to the minimal intervention of humans.

As the government eased the restrictions on the drone sector, youth can utilize them to launch startups related to drones.
