India's 1st medical drone corridor may start by year end; AIIMS Delhi to Jhajjar to be covered in minutes

India's first medical drone corridor will deliver life-saving supplies from AIIMS Delhi to Jhajjar. The drone service is expected to start by the end of the year. 

The first dedicated medical unmanned aerial vehicle or UAV corridor in India may start before the end of this year. The All India Insitute of Medical Sciences in Delhi may get a drone corridor with the AIIMS in Haryana's Jhajjar.

A drone corridor is a designated airspace from which commercial UAV operations are kept out of.

The service may include rushing life-saving supplies from the AIIMS Delhi to Jhajjar, which is situated 50 kms away. The journey between the two takes about 1.5 hours, while the drone corridor is expected to cover the distance in minutes.

Reports say that the ministry and Airports Authority of India have approved the plan, but AIIMS is still waiting for Delhi Police's approval.

Over the last year, drones have been used to transport medical supplies to far-away areas of India.
