The use of drones is increasing continuously in organizing various programs in Jaipur. Also, in different parts of the country, information about crimes using drones has also come to the fore. Security agencies are also alerted from time to time regarding the use of drones to carry out criminal incidents. In view of this, this order has been issued in the entire Jaipur Commissionerate.
According to the guidance manual of DGCA of the Government of India and the order issued by the Ministry of Civil Aviation as of 25 August 2021, drones have been divided into five categories. Of these, four categories of drones will be completely banned. Only nano drones will get permission.
These are the five regions
- Drones weighing 250 grams or less fall in the Nano category.
- Drones weighing more than 250 grams and up to 2 kg come in the micro category.
- Drones weighing more than 2 kg and up to 25 kg come in the small category.
- Drones weighing more than 25 kg and up to 150 kg come in the medium category.
- Drones weighing more than 150 kg have been kept in the large category.
Before flying the drone, security clearance has to be obtained from the DGCA and the Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India. Despite this, drones will not be able to fly in Jaipur.
Will not be able to fly drone even after registration in DGCA
According to the guideline, before flying the drones of micro, small, medium and large categories, it would have been necessary to register them on the platform named Digital Sky on the website of DGCA. Apart from this, it is necessary to take DGCA UIN (Unique Identification Number) and UAOP (Unmanned Aircraft Operation Permit). After this, before flying, security clearance has to be taken from the Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India. Despite this, drones will not be able to fly in Jaipur. However, this is not needed in Nano category drones.
Due to Jaipur being the capital of Rajasthan, important functions, VVIP movements, and an abundance of domestic and foreign tourists take place here. It is a very sensitive area from a security point of view. For this reason, it is very important to stop the use of drones in various programs at present. Local police can register a case and take action against flying drones.
Keep this in mind before flying a nano drone
Before flying the nano drone,
- The police station of the area where photography is to be done should be informed 24 hours before flying the drone.
- The drone should not be flown above 50 feet i.e. 15 meters.
- The drone should not be flown in any restricted area.
Ban on flying drones in these areas of Jaipur
Even Nano cannot be flown in Jaipur’s Civil Lines, CM House, Raj Bhavan, Assembly, around the airport, District Collectorate, Secretariat, all courts and government buildings, headquarters and offices of security forces. There is a complete ban on flying drones in India.
