India is witnessing rapid development in drones,
IN the last few days we have diagnostic sample transportation by Drone in Uttrakhand, then drone Mahotsav featuring drone Taxi, followed by Adani’s acquisition of general aeronautics, and now Medical transportation via Drone in Gujrat.
This project will also prove beneficial to our security forces for speedy logistics since the area of kutch is marshy land and many times it’s not feasible to carry out normal logistic operations.
