Just as the recent drone attack in the Indian Air Force station at Jammu created ripples in the country, the Indian Navy has issued a notification that an area of radius 3km from the perimeter of all Indian Navy establishments/naval bases in West Bengal has been designated as ‘No Fly Zone’ for any drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

The defence spokesperson today shared that all individual and civil agencies have been prohibited from flying such non-conventional aerial objects, drones and UAVs near the navy establishments. Such flying objects will not be permitted within a 3km area radius of the naval base or areas in the state.

It mentioned that the approval for the operation of drones by any operators or civil agencies is governed by the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs.
