Garuda Aerospace Drone has received approval from Tamil Nadu Government. The price of Garuda Aerospace drone starts from Rs.2 lakh.
The Tamil Nadu government approved a subsidy for Garuda Aerospace, an Indian drone startup, as part of its agricultural mechanization programme. Only two companies have received this approval. The program aims to address agricultural labor shortages and increase crop production by subsidizing pesticide spraying and pest monitoring by drones. Farmers can also get drone pilot training or hire licensed pilots. Those who have bank loans for Garuda Aerospace drones benefit from a 3% interest subsidy through the Agriculture Infrastructure Fund (AIF).
Agneswar Jayaprakash, Founder and CEO of Garwood Aerospace expressed his commitment to advance agricultural practices in Tamil Nadu and across India through advanced drone technology. The subsidy provided through the agricultural mechanization program will facilitate greater adoption of technology and increase crop production. He expressed gratitude for the program and its subsidies, and affirmed Garuda Aerospace’s commitment to helping and enabling farmers to adopt technology and modern agricultural practices.
