NEW DELHI, Dec 2: The Civil Aviation Ministry has launched a 'Digital Sky Platform' for registration of drones and their operators.
The ministry in a statement said nano drones in India can start flying legally with immediate effect from Saturday as the Civil Aviation regulations come into force.
"For drones, operators and pilots are required to register on the Digital Sky Portal," the statment said.
The platform has begun accepting registrations of users. Payments for Unmanned Aerial Operator's Permit (UAOP) and Unique Identification Numbers (UIN) will be accepted through the Bharat Kosh (bharatkosh.gov.in) portal, it said.
To get permissions to fly Remotely Piloted Aerial Systems (RPAS), operators or remote pilots will have to file a flight plan. Flying in the �green zones' will require only intimation of the time and location of the flights via the portal or the app.
Permissions will be required for flying in �yellow zones' and flights will not be allowed in the �red zones'. - IANS
