Agnishwar Jayaprakash, Founder and CEO of Garuda Aerospace, spoke about ESG and carbon neutrality, as well as how the company owed responsibility to the greater good of the world through drones, technology, and innovation.

 

Garuda Aerospace will produce over 25,000 drones in the next 15 months, revolutionising agriculture. Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the agricultural Green Revolution 2.0 by launching 100 Kisan drones in 100 villages across India. This resulted in job opportunities for young people all over India.

PM Modi launched the 'Kisan Drone Yatra,' a Garuda Aerospace Pvt Ltd initiative, and launched 100 'Kisan Drones' in various cities and towns across India to spray pesticides in farms across the country. The 100 Kisan Drones were launched in 100 villages across 16 Indian states, including Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, and Goa.

Farmers can use the high-capacity Kisan drones to transport their produce, such as fruits, vegetables, and flowers, to markets in record time, increasing their income. PM addressed farmers in Manesar, Haryana, during his inaugural speech. The Kisan Drone Yatra began from Manesar in Gurgaon, Haryana. Kisan Drones will also be promoted for crop assessment, land record digitization, and insecticide and nutrient spraying.

 

"It's such a privilege to present Garuda Aerospace DGCA-approved, Made in India, carbon neutral drones and the ESG goal of impacting 1 billion Indians positively through Drone Technology at Davos 2023 hosted by the World Economic Forum. It's an honour to represent Tamil Nadu and share my experiences with industry titans, global political leaders, and policymakers. "I spoke at an influential panel discussion about progressive government policies and how the startup community is transforming India into a Global Drone Hub by 2030," said Agnishwar Jayaprakash.

"I also thank the government for its progressive policies and for transforming the environment through the use of a green carbon-neutral drone, which has impacted climate change and farmers across India," Agnishwar Jayaprakash concluded.

 

Garuda Aerospace's DGCA-approved, Made in India drones serve several multibillion-dollar industries such as agriculture, infrastructure, industry 4.0, and defence. Garuda's growth strategy is to become India's first unicorn startup by impacting one billion lives.​
