New Delhi, Apr 30 (MNN) The Ministry of Civil Aviation and Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) have granted conditional exemption to the Telangana government to conduct experimental delivery of Covid-19 vaccines within visual line of sight range through drones.

The permission exemption is valid for one year or until further orders. These exemptions shall be valid only if all conditions and limitations as stated for the respective entities are strictly adhered to, the Indian government said.

Trials will assist in assessing conditions such as population, degree of isolation, and geography etc to identify regions that specifically require drone deliveries.

Earlier this month, similar permission was granted to the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) for conducting feasibility study of Covid-19 vaccine delivery through drones in collaboration with IIT- Kanpur.

The grant of these permissions is intended to achieve the dual objectives of faster vaccine delivery and improved healthcare access at the citizen’s doorstep, especially in remote areas.

This step would also limit human exposure to COVID-congested or COVID-prone areas through aerial delivery.
