Drone Festival – Bharat Drone Mahotsav 2022 – Insights from experts

In order to scale drone adoption in India, there is a need for a solution or an ecosystem that simplifies drone flying, data capture, processing, and consumption. India’s biggest drone festival – Bharat Drone Mahotsav 2022, brings together key stakeholders in the domain, including StartUps, in order to showcase India’s presence and innovation in the sector. I believe, this along with the new Drone Rules 2021, will further boost the creation of Geospatial data through drones in India. These geospatial data sets along with Esri India’s recently launched Indo ArcGIS Solutions Products, will further help drive the growth of various sectors including Agriculture, Infrastructure, Rural Development, Forest Management, Lands Records, Disaster Management, Healthcare, Defense, and many more.  Indo ArcGIS already has more than 500+ India-specific data sets readily available. In addition, Esri India’s Site Scan for ArcGIS hosted on a government-approved cloud in India provides the much-needed manageability, reliability, scalability, and cost efficiency for drone data processing. Site Scan is a great enabler for numerous Drone service providers.” – Agendra Kumar, Managing Director, Esri India

“Prime Minister Modi outlined the game-changing growth potential of drones in our country across industries. Drone technology has the ability to translate to significant job opportunities if youth are skilled to handle such kind of technologies.  Realising this, TSSC has partnered with  the Kaushalya – Skill University in Gujarat, and also opening skill lab in Madhya Pradesh to skill manpower for these opportunities in future.” – Mr. Arvind Bali, CEO, Telecom Sector Skill Council
