Center on Saturday stated that it has allowed permission of "No-Permission-No-Takeoff" (NPNT) compliant drone operations at 166 additional green zones.
Therefore, the approved sites permit drone usage up to 400 ft Above Ground Level (AGL).
These zones are in addition to the 'Sixty-Six' green zone sites that was approved before. The list of the approved green zone sites can be accessed from the 'Digital Sky’ platform.
According to DGCA, under No Permission - No Take-off compliance, every remotely piloted Aircraft has to obtain valid permission through the ‘Digital Sky' platform or app before operating in India.
Flying in these approved 'green-zones' will require only report of the time and location of the flights via the Digital Sky portal or the app.
The framework mandates users to register on the online portal that acts as the national unmanned traffic management system for remotely piloted aircraft.
