Drone Registration started by DGCA

Good news for Indian Drone Industry

There are many drone owner’s who missed getting a DAN in Jan 2020. The Ministry of Civil Aviation through Public Notice No. AV-13024/12/2019-SDIT-MoCA dated 8 June 2020 restarted the enrolment of drones on Digital sky portal.

In order to facilitate the identification of all civil drones and drone operators, a one-time opportunity for voluntary disclosure of such drones and drone operators is being provided through the Digital Sky Portal. All persons in possession of any types of drones are required to complete the process of online registration using Digital Sky portal. This is applicable to all drones.

Registration and obtaining OAN and DAN is absolutely free.
