Today is the second and last day of the ongoing ‘Bharat Drone Shakti-2023’ program at the Indian Air Force’s Hindon Airbase in Ghaziabad. In this, more than 75 startups from across the country are showcasing their drones. Till a few years ago, the drone which was used only for shooting, today is performing its responsibilities very well in everything from spraying pesticides in the fields to protecting the borders of the country.
This is the reason why the government is working on a plan to make India a global drone hub by 2030. Currently, India’s drone manufacturing industry business is around Rs 100 crore, which is expected to reach Rs 900 crore by next year.
