No NGO or individual will be allowed to launch Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), Unmanned Aerial Survey (UAS) etc. Government agencies and organisations should obtain appropriate clearance from the local police and aviation authorities before launching any UAS/UAV,” he said.
He added that any person contravening this order shall be punishable under Section 188 of the IPC, 1860....
