Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) which is the Aviation security regulator in the country has issued guidelines for drone operating systems, which act like cockpits on the ground to remotely pilot the unmanned aerial vehicle.


To develop global standard drone regulations that would permit, the commercial application of various drone technologies the Union Ministry of Civil Aviation has worked hard to establish a world-leading drone ecosystem in India. Because of the fact that the unmanned aerial vehicle technology is still new and taking into consideration, India’s security environment the preparation of these drone regulations through a Civil Aviation Requirement (CAR) has taken multiple years. India has formulated an all-digital process instead of simply formulating a paper-based process for registering and operating drones. The Digital Sky Platform is one such fully digitalized national unmanned traffic management (UTM) platform that says “no permission, no takeoff” (NPNT).


The owners or the users of any unmanned aerial vehicle will be required to do a one-time registration of their drones. Except for the nano category, for remaining every flight the users will require permission to fly on a mobile app. Any drone without a digital permit to fly will simply not be able to takeoff to prevent unauthorized flights and to ensure public safety. The Unmanned aircraft system traffic management (UTM) operates as a traffic regulator in the drone airspace and coordinates closely with the defence and civilian air traffic controllers (ATCs) to ensure that these unmanned aerial vehicles remain on the approved flight paths.
