Centre Mulling Over Including 21 More Airports Under Krishi Udan Scheme

Union Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia has said that the government is planning to bring 21 more airports under the Krishi Udan scheme. After making his speech on the second day of the ongoing First Meeting of the Agriculture Working Group under India’s G20 Presidency in Indore, Madhya Pradesh, the Minister informed the media yesterday.

According to Scindia, Krishi Udan has been a major success in the nation and has aided in the transportation of grapes, jackfruit, and lemons grown in north-eastern states both domestically and internationally. The plan focuses on transporting perishable food items out of the Northeast, mountainous, and tribal areas. The Minister added that by 2030, India intends to become a major drone hub on a global scale.

According to Scindia, the government has eliminated several onerous regulations in the New Drone Policy, which was introduced in August 2021 and makes it easier to do business, comply with regulations, and register a drone.

The three-day conference, which ends today, is being attended by some 100 representatives from 30 nations, including G20 members. The discussions on the major outputs of the Agriculture Working Group will take place on Day 3. It will be a technical workshop with participation from all parties involved and international organisations, as well as roundtable talks.
