Two Bengaluru startups get India’s 1st drone certifications

Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has, in a first, certified one drone model each of two Bengaluru startups, Skylark Drones and Throttle Aerospace Systems. The drones are compliant with the NPNT (no permission, no take-off) protocol under the new drone policy. Under this protocol, a software layer allows drones to fly only after they get automated permission from authorities.
