Srinagar Declared No-Fly Zone for Drones During PM Modi’s Visit


In light of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s upcoming visit to Srinagar for International Day of Yoga celebrations, the Srinagar police have designated the city as a temporary “Red Zone” for drone and quadcopter operations. This no-drone zone is effective from June 18, 2024, and will remain in place for the duration of the Prime Minister’s visit.

Ensuring Security During PM Visit

This measure, authorized under Rule 24(2) of the Drone Rules, 2021, aims to bolster security arrangements for the Prime Minister’s visit. The official order issued by Srinagar police clearly states, “Srinagar city has been declared a ‘Temporary Red Zone’ for the operation of drones and quadcopters…”

Penalties for Unauthorized Drone Use

The police have emphasized that unauthorized drone operations within the designated Red Zone will be penalized according to the relevant provisions of the Drone Rules, 2021. This serves as a reminder to drone owners and operators of the regulations in place.

Public Cooperation Sought

The Srinagar police have urged the public to cooperate with the security measures. Their statement concludes with, “As responsible citizens, your cooperation is solicited in this regard.”

Visiting Srinagar During Drone Restrictions

If you’re visiting Srinagar during this period, be aware of the temporary ban on drones. If you have planned drone activities, it’s best to postpone them until after June 20th, when the restrictions are expected to be lifted.
