While questioning the general, Gupta asked, how many drones were deployed state and union territory-wise during 2021 and 2022. At the same time, he asked how much data the government have regarding the number of drone licences.

He wanted to know if the government has launched any awareness campaign regarding the mechanism for obtaining certification, registration, remote pilot licence and insurance for Unmanned Aircraft Systems, then what are its details.

In response to the questions, General Singh said that as on December 31, 2022 the number of unmanned aircraft systems drones with Unique Identification Numbers (UIN) is 5673.
