Hi!
I have a DJI Mavic Pro. I bought it in Dubai and have registered it with UAE General Civil Aviation Authority.

But now I am taking it to India and as an Indian citizen, I can register it for for importing. But for that, the first step is to get an ETA as I understood from the new rules. I have registered in their website, but i cannot find the ETA model there for mavic pro or any dji drones.
I am quoting below from the website:

Entities that intend on importing Drones into India shall first have to obtain an Equipment Type Approval (“ETA”) from the Wireless Planning and Coordination (“WPC”) wing of India’s Department of Telecommunication (“DoT”) for operating Drones in de-licensed frequency bands. The manufacturer or importer of a drone needs to make sure that the product’s communication frequency has received a clearance to operate from the Department of Telecom’s (DoT’s) Wireless Planning Commission (WPC), referred to as an Equipment Type Approval (ETA). While you as an operator do not have to approach the WPC to get a clearance, the manufacturer of your drone has to. If your drone does not have an ETA, send in a request to the manufacturer of your drone, as this is going to stop any legal flying you are going to do, regardless of which category your drone falls under.

I then tried selecting "add ETA model" , I am not sure what options to go forward from that step, what to select in the following :

Equipment category:
Equipment type:
Min Freq. (MHz) :        Max Freq. (MHz) :       
Emission :       
RF Power (dBw) :       
Tolerance :


Funny rules!!


Much thanks,

Details of the new rules :IMPORT OF DRONES

The Drone Policy now allows for the import of Drones albeit with certain regulatory requirements in place. Entities that intend on importing Drones into India shall first have to obtain an Equipment Type Approval (“ETA”) from the Wireless Planning and Coordination (“WPC”) wing of India’s Department of Telecommunication (“DoT”) for operating Drones in de-licensed frequency bands. De-licensed frequency bands are low frequency bands, which for instance, facilitate communication between connected vehicles in the automotive industry. Drones will now also run on such de-licensed frequency bands.

On obtaining the ETAs, the importers are then required to obtain import clearance from the DGCA. Details of the Drone, including the maximum All-Up-Weight, maximum height attainable, foreign manufacturer details, purpose of operations and security clearance (along with other details) are to be provided. Such details shall be vetted by the DGCA and on case-to-case basis, the DGCA shall accordingly provide the import clearance. Based on the import clearance received from the DGCA, the Director General of Foreign Trade (“DGFT”) shall subsequently issue the license for the import of the Drones.

Only on obtaining the clearance from DGCA and the license from DGFT can the importers then proceed to obtaining a unique identification number (“UIN”) and unmanned aircraft operator permits (“UAOP”) which are necessary to fly / operate the drone. Processes for obtaining UIN and UAOP are detailed below.

However, there is no specific approval process or time-line provided within which the WPC, DGCA and DGFT shall provide the necessary import clearances. Also, it is unclear whether the import clearances would be linked to the online Digital Sky Platform. Thus, there remains ambiguity with respect to the time / effort that may be required for obtaining such clearances.

However, importers of Nano sized drones are exempt from DGCA and DGFT import clearances.

Hi All, So let me clear off all the doubts and make it easy for everyone to complete the process.

1. ETA (Equipment Type Approval Certificate) is provided by WPC Wing, DOT (Department of Telecommunication)

A). ETA form (submitted to local RLO - Regional Licensing. Officer)
B) Product RF Test Report. available for download on their website. dji.com/euro-compliance/
C) Product Specs and Manual/Catalog - available for download on their website for each category.
D) Self Declaration (ETA) for application with details for your use, address, and registration, and undertaking that you have applied to only their particular RLO.
E) Authorisation letter from manufacturer to apply for Drone Registration to be submitted.  (This one we need from DJI). This can be a simple format of your drone details and authorization that you have purchased from DJI and all the product catalog/manual and specs as specified with the product.
F) A payment of Rs. 10,000/- to. bharatkosh.gov.in and attach the receipt in the application to your respective RLO. (under Ministry TELECOMMUNICATIONS) and purpose ETA.

Getting an ETA takes at least 30 days from RLO. WPC Wing, DOT.

2. Import Security Clearance ( A security clearance from DGCA)
This process is easy as DJI does not need to provide anything and you will need to fill in all the details and submit a Self Declaration Form and Product Details to their website esahaj.gov.in. This one requires no payment and totally online.
(If a company, then Company PAN CARD AND Incorporation certificate along with TAN.)

3.. Import Licence from DGFT
This one we will get once we submit a copy. of ETA and Security Clearance from DGCA. A copy of this also requires. all the product Details, Invoices, and Bank Statment/Credit Card (from where you purchased). be attached in their form. They. send you Import clearance and then you can import the drone.

4. for Drone Registration
you can go to digitalsky.dgca.gov.in and apply with all details and payment of Rs. 1000/-  to Bharat Kosh under Ministry Civil Aviation and Tourism, ETA. The digital sky comunication is. the last but very easy as they guide you step by step (also for NPNT category drones.)

So, in short, we need an "Authorisation letter from manufacturer to apply for Drone Registration" to be submitted.. and that you have to apply as per your case. I have got all documents so far except this one. ;)

Hi there. According to India's Import Policy, Drones are 'prohibited' except for R&D and defense use. There are no DJI Authorized Retail Stores in India to sell drones. Simple consultations are available but aftersales repair service cannot be provided. Hope for your understanding and patience.
