Garuda Aerospace marks halfway of Drone Yatra 2.0, covers 192,309 km in 16 states

In a bid to conduct India’s largest farmer outreach programme, Garuda Aerospace, India’s leading drone manufacturer has successfully crossed the halfway mark for the Drone Yatra 2.0, the company announced today. The Drone Yatra 2.0 is specifically designed to demonstrate the efficacy of drones for various agricultural uses and promote their benefits to farmers across the country.

Highlighting the Drone Yatra, Agnishwar Jayaprakash, Founder and CEO, Garuda Aerospace said, “Garuda Kisan Drones are the most affordable in the market priced at Rs. 4.5 lakh each, we have already received booking orders for 6,000 drones indicating the monumental success of the Drone Yatra. A surge in demand is due to Garuda Kisan Drones being priced nearly 50 per cent less than most other DGCA-approved drone manufacturers and Garuda Kisan drones are eligible for both loans at a 5-6 per cent interest rate under AIF (Agriculture Infrastructure Fund) and 50-70 per cent government subsidy under SMAM (Sub Mission on Agricultural Mechanization) scheme where farmers, rural entrepreneurs, custom hiring centres and FPOs (farmers producer organisations) are spending only 25-50 per cent for each drone from their pockets.”

Garuda Warriors conducted demo sessions on the ground during the Drone Yatra 2.0, helping farmers incorporate drone technology and educating them for a brighter future,” the drone manufacturer informed.

“We’re halfway through our Drone Yatra 2.0, and it’s been an incredible experience meeting our farmers and enthusiastic youth. Our biggest goal with this initiative was to create maximum impact and gain the trust of farmers by conducting demo sessions on-ground by making them familiar with the technology. This is one of the biggest farmer contact programmes in the country. We’re proud of our Garuda warriors for completing the demonstrations of our agricultural drones, showing the power of becoming a drone pilot. We will continue to innovate and deliver high-quality drone technology solutions to meet the evolving needs of our customers,” added Jayaprakash.
