The Indian legal regime’s relationship with drones has been eventful in the recent years and rather tumultuous at its best times. The law on drones has undergone a complete overhaul not once but twice in this year itself, and the latest Drone Rules, 2021 have significantly liberalized the regime in India. This new regime is bound to provide a huge thrust to the already simmering drone industry in India, and along with it give rise to numerous new economic and technological opportunities.
Our paper covers all these aspects and much more, including a detailed analysis of the new regime, and a comparison with drone laws around the world. We have also shed light on existing and upcoming use cases, along with possible safety/security concerns and legal lacunae which need to be addressed with the ubiquity of civil drone usage. The paper is bound to be helpful for anyone invested (or merely interested) in the drone revolution in India and across the globe.
Our team of experts on drones and other disruptive technologies comprising of lawyers, engineers, and AI thought leaders would be delighted to speak with you to help you understand the latest regulatory framework and business models surrounding it.

Healthcare in India: A Paradigm shift which attempts to untangle the complexities of the laws governing the pharmaceutical, medical device and healthcare industry in India.
