Have you got yourself a new drone and eager to fly it? Before you rush out the door, you must acquaint yourself with the do's and don'ts of flying drones under new regulations.

Starting from December 1, the government is going to introduce new rules for flying drones. 

ADG R K Mallik told all SPs and DCs in the video conferencing chaired by the Chief Secretary Sudhir Tripathi at Project building on Thursday that for this DGCA has created Red, Yellow and Green Zone. 

The red zone will be VVIP zone. This zone will be restricted to any type of drone. 

In the Yellow Zone, with the permission of SP and DC, one can fly drones weighing up to 250 gm whereas, the green zone will be free and anyone can fly drones without requiring any kind of permission. 

Those who disregard the rules will have to pay a penalty of one thousand rupees or may face a three-month jail sentence. It was also informed that in order to monitor drone flying, every district will be deputed of a techno-friendly nodal officer.
