Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurates India’s biggest Drone Festival, Bharat Drone Mahotsav 2022, at Delhi’s Pragati Maidan. At the event, the prime minister will interact with Kisan Drone pilots and startups in the drone exhibition centre.


PM Modi will also witness open-air drone demonstrations. The Mahotsav will also witness a virtual award of drone pilot certificates, product launches, panel discussions, flying demonstrations, display of a Made in India Drone Taxi prototype, among others.


According to the Prime Minister’s Office, more than 1600 delegates, consisting of government officials, armed forces, central armed police forces, Public Sector Units (PSUs), foreign diplomats, private companies as well as drone startups, etc., will participate in the Bharat Drone Mahotsav 2022.


Bharat Drone Mahotsav 2022 is a two-day event and is being held on May 27 and 28. Notably, the two-day festival comes amid the Centre's push for extensive use of drones in various fields.


Earlier this month, the civil aviation minister Jyotiraditya Scindia unveiled two policies, Drone Shakti and Kisan Drone, and launched a drone experience studio at NITI Aayog. Scindia said that fees for drone pilot training courses will significantly decrease in the next 3-4 months and more institutes will get the necessary certification from the aviation regulatory body.
