Telangana: Union Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia on Saturday launched the ‘Medicine from the Sky’ project. Under this, medicines and vaccines will be supplied with the help of drones. Initially, under the pilot project, medicines and vaccines will be delivered to remote areas through it in 16 Green Zones of Telangana. The Union Minister said, “The ‘Medicine from the Sky’ project will be started in 16 green zones (of Telangana). Its data will be analyzed for three months. Together with the Ministry of Health, Ministry of IT, State Government and the Center, we will analyze the data and develop a model for the entire country. Today is the day of revolution not only for Telangana but for the entire country.

What is the specialty of the project?

This drone has been developed jointly by PHFI (Public Health Foundation of India) and Marut Drones. It is specially designed to take the load of medical supplies. These drones can carry 4 types of boxes and all four boxes can maintain different temperatures. Because of this, they can carry the vaccine anywhere at a temperature of 2-8 °C. With its help, life saving medicines and blood can also be delivered to the primary health centers. Under the new drone policy, no prior permission will be required for operation/flying of drones under green zones.

‘Medicine from the Sky’ has been launched by Telangana in association with World Economic Forum, NITI Aayog and Healthnet Global (Apollo Hospital). Launching the ‘Medicine from the Sky’ project, Scindia said that the new drone policy of the central government has made the use of drones easier in the country by relaxing the rules. Because of this, the use of drones for essential services has become convenient.
