Due to the drains that are running through the industrial areas of Delhi, the authorities are planning to use drones to check illegal dumping of waste and sources of pollution in these drains. The plan is to deploy drones in two industrial areas of Delhi on a pilot basis.
If the results are encouraging then all the industrial areas would be monitored with drones in the future. This issue was discussed at a meeting that was held in March between the two-member National Green Tribunal (NGT)-appointed Yamuna pollution monitoring committee, the DSIIDC, the Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) and the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB).
The Delhi police said that even though the use of drones is prohibited, they would examine the proposal if a government agency wanted to use them for official purposes.
