Jun 14, 2021 16:51 IST | By Editorji News Desk

The government has invited bids for the use of drones to deliver Covid-19 vaccines and drugs to remote and difficult-to-reach areas to ensure last-mile coverage in select locations.

According to the bid document, the Indian Council of Medical Research conducted a successful feasibility study in collaboration with the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur and has developed a standard protocol for the delivery of vaccines using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles.

On behalf of the ICMR, the HLL Infra Tech Services Limited has invited expression of interest through the Central Public Procurement Portal from experienced Indian agencies for the delivery of medical supplies by UAVs.
