India: Proposed Civil Regulatons


It has been technically illegal to operate drones in India but at a recent press conference, Civil Aviation Secretary RN Choubey said, “Drones are difficult to regulate. We’ve come up with draft CAR on UAS. There will be a stakeholder consultation for 30 days. After that, we will put out the final regulatory framework, which ensures ease of using drones while maintaining that it doesn’t breach of security.”

Interesting that the ban created a black market.

It's been technically illegal to use or possess 2.4ghz RC radio gear in India for years now, FM is the only "legal" option there.

That's not correct.
In the initial years (talk of AM days) 27 MHz was the band allotted to models (and many others). An Indian firm was licensed to manufacture and sell Tx/Rx equipment on the band for modelling use with certain other controls .
India never allotted any other frequency band for modelling use.
2.4 Ghz band was made free few years back and any equipment on this band could be used as long as the equipment was certified by Wireless Planning Cell (similar to FCC in US). Post opening up of the 2.4 Ghz band many radio sets were approved by WPC (mainly due to work or local retailers).

Any radio set on FM, in my knowledge was never legally allowed. The reason being, the frequency bands that most FM equipment used (72, 40, 36 etc) were all in use by the armed forces and thus WPC would never approve any radio on these frequencies. And as said earlier the government never approved any FM band for exclusive model use.
