The Indian Government has played a major role in boosting Indian Drone industries through their liberal regulations and subsidies. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Make in India initiative has encouraged drone manufacturers to produce more drones within the country. Apart from the PM, even Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari and the Civil Aviation Minister Jyothiraditya Scindia have applauded and boosted the impact that drones could have in numerous industries today.
What has attracted international investors from Europe, Dubai and Singapore to DroneAcharya is the fact that the company has some of the best industry talent and drone and GIS veterans in India. Their cumulative experience and subject matter expertise is a recipe for a sure shot success.
“The Indian Drone industry has a huge potential for generating jobs in India. At DroneAcharya, we are trying to bridge the glaring gap between the demand and supply of skilled Drone pilots and GIS personnel through our application – based courses,” states Prateek Srivastava, Founder and CEO of the company.
A major development for DroneAcharya in 2022 was the successful authorisation from DGCA to conduct Drone Pilot Training right here in Pune. This is one of the first Remote Pilot Training Organisations in Maharashtra under the New Drone Rules 2021.
