India’s Drone Registration Begins Today


Starting Dec 1st, you will now be able to register your Drone on Digital Sky Platform.

The Digital Sky Platform is the first-of-its-kind national unmanned traffic management (UTM) platform that implements “no permission, no takeoff” (NPNT).

Users will be required to do a one-time registration of their drones, pilots and owners. For every flight (exempted for the nano category), users will be required to ask for permission to fly on a mobile app and an automated process permits or denies the request instantly.

To prevent unauthorized flights and to ensure public safety, any drone without a digital permit to fly will simply not be able to takeoff. The UTM operates as a traffic regulator in the drone airspace and coordinates closely with the defense and civilian air traffic controllers (ATCs) to ensure that drones remain on the approved flight paths.

The news app lets Apple Watch users scroll through article headlines, and even see an accompanying photograph, but does not let a user read any part or the whole article itself. Users, however, can save articles onto Safari’s reading list via force touch.
