Fearing law and order problems, security threats and the possibility of misuse of drones by anti-social elements, the UT Administration has banned the flying of drones and low-flying objects in the city.
According to an order issued by District Magistrate Mandip Singh Brar, flying of drones and low-flying objects within the UT are prohibited for 60 days, he said.
However, the order will not apply to police personnel and other government officials/ agencies if the drone is used in connection with their official duties or for photography during social events for which prior permission of the District Magistrate has to be obtained in writing. These social events may include ring ceremony, pre-wedding photo shoot and wedding ceremony.
Any breach of the order will invite action under Section 188 of the IPC.
