The Global Drone Revolution
Aerial Transport, Agritech, Commerce & Allied Opportunities
  

November 16, 2021

 

 

The Indian legal regime’s relationship with drones has been eventful in the recent years and rather tumultuous at its best times. The law on drones has undergone a complete overhaul not once but twice in this year itself, and the latest Drone Rules, 2021 have significantly liberalized the regime in India. This new regime is bound to provide a huge thrust to the already simmering drone industry in India, and along with it give rise to numerous new economic and technological opportunities.

Our paper covers all these aspects and much more, including a detailed analysis of the new regime, and a comparison with drone laws around the world. We have also shed light on existing and upcoming use cases, along with possible safety/security concerns and legal lacunae which need to be addressed with the ubiquity of civil drone usage. The paper is bound to be helpful for anyone invested (or merely interested) in the drone revolution in India and across the globe.

Our team of experts on drones and other disruptive technologies comprising of lawyers, engineers, and AI thought leaders would be delighted to speak with you to help you understand the latest regulatory framework and business models surrounding it.

Nishith Desai Associates presents a virtual event titled Healthcare in India: A Paradigm shift which attempts to untangle the complexities of the laws governing the pharmaceutical, medical device and healthcare industry in India.

The Indian healthcare scenario has witnessed a paradigm shift in the recent years, accelerated by the onset of the covid pandemic. There have been massive changes in the way stakeholders in the healthcare industry conduct business, along with a shift in mind-set of doctors and institutional health service providers such as hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturer, diagnostic and testing centers etc. These changes have necessitated the understanding of complex legal and regulatory framework that govern the healthcare industry.
