India’s largest manufacturer of fully indigenous drones for defence, homeland security and industrial applications, ideaForge, has launched a unique drone buyback offer aimed at replacing products that are not compliant with Indian regulations with DGCA-approved, NPNT-compliant, indigenous drones. Organizations can avail benefits up to INR 1.5 lakh when they exchange their non-compliant drone for ideaForge’s DGCA-approved NPNT-compliant NINJA UAV for their mapping applications.
The comprehensive list of benefits under the drone buyback offer package includes cash discounts in exchange for non-compliant drone; additional hardware such as batteries & charger at no extra cost; 20% discount on purchase of new ideaForge product, and services which includes an extended support package for additional 1 year or 500 cycles, redeemable upto 3 times, at a discounted price, enabling the lowest cost of ownership globally to its customers in this class of drones.
Since cash flows are a major concern at the moment, buying a mapping drone to run a business can be challenging. Taking this into consideration, ideaForge has also announced the industry’s first financing option for drones with the aim of helping the industry, partners, and other stakeholders. Surveyors can also choose to finance their drone from our partners.
Speaking on the offer, ideaForge VP – Surveillance and Mapping Business, Vishal Saxena said, “Our Hon’ble Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi’s call to create Atmanirbhar Bharat is pivotal for building an indigenous drone industry. ideaForge has been on the forefront of building Made-in-India drones and creating a sustainable drone ecosystem in India. With our one-of-its-kind drone buyback offer, we have created a platform for surveyors to adopt indigenous technology for mapping a self-reliant India. We are confident that this offer will reduce the dependence on imported drones which do not comply with Indian regulations.”
Built on a strong foundation of interdisciplinary engineering, ideaForge has become a global leader in UAV technology. Its drones offer class-leading performance and reliability, and have been widely adopted for defence, homeland security and enterprise applications. In India, ideaForge has over 90% market share in the security and surveillance market of homegrown drones.
