Register Your Drone – 31st Jan 2020

Drone owners it is mandatory to enlist your drones before 5 P.M 31st January 2020


As per public notice no. AV-22011/4/2015-DG dated 13 January 2020, issued by the Ministry of civil Aviation, here.

All unmanned aircraft need to be enlisted. For ample clarity, these include Models, Prototypes, Toys, RC aircrafts, Autonomous and Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems etc.

The drone enlistment form has two parts. After uploading the drone owner’s information, the owner will receive an Owner Acknowledgement Number (OAN). Using the OAN, the owner will upload the drone-related information and will receive a Drone Acknowledgement Number (DAN).

Each drone will require a fresh enlistment. Since a drone owner may have multiple drones, the owner shall use same OAN to enlist all the drones owned by him. A separate DAN will be issued for each drone.

Ownership of a drone in India without a valid OAN and DAN shall invite penal action as per applicable laws.

Possession of an OAN or DAN does NOT confer the right to operate the drone in India.
