Gurugram , 14 Jun 2022

Jyotiraditya M. Scindia, Union Minister of Civil Aviation, today awarded the first Type Certificate (TC) under Drone Rules, 2021 to IoTechWorld Avigation Pvt Ltd.  The Gurugram based company was established in April 2017 and is one of India’s leading manufacturers of kisan drones.  

IoTech has received the Type Certificate in barely 34 days after submission of its online application on the DGCA’s DigitalSky Platform on 11 May 2022.  This is despite the fact that the Drone Rules, 2021, allow 60 days to Quality Council of India (QCI) or the Certification Bodies (CB) and 15 days to DGCA for issuing the Type Certificate (i.e 75 days in total), provided all the necessary documents and test reports are as per specifications. 

The Drone Rules, 2021 were notified on 25 Aug 2021 and the ‘Certification Scheme for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (CSUAS)’ for obtaining Type Certificate (TC) for drones was notified on 26 Jan 2022.

There are three globally-renowned Certification Bodies (CB) approved by QCI namely – TQ Cert, UL India and Bureau Veritas.  Drone manufacturers are free to approach any Certification Body for testing their drone prototype. 

The drone certification scheme of January 2022 was developed by the Quality Council of India in consultation with drone startups, industry, academia and defence experts. The Government played the role of that of a facilitator and problem solver. 

The drone certification scheme is likely to create an eco-system for world class drones to be manufactured in India and sold all across the world.  There are 14 drone prototypes that are currently undergoing the certification tests.  

The number of Type Certified prototypes may exceed 100 over the next three years.Speaking on this occasion, Shri Jyotiraditya M. Scindia congratulated IoTechWorld Avigation Pvt Ltd for the first Type Certificate (TC) under Drone Rules, 2021. 

He said that Ministry of Civil Aviation is working in the direction of Hon’ble Prime Minister’s vision “Minimum Government, Maximum Governance”. India has set a target to become a drone hub by 2030 and issuing of type certificate in record 34 days is a step in that direction. The other drone prototypes shall also be awarded certification soon, he added.
