Textile Ministry to use drones for NTC mills survey

New Delhi 

Textile Minister Piyush Goyal has suggested using drones to survey NTC (National Textile Corporation Ltd) mills to protect and monitor the land of the CPSU periodically to take swift action against the encroachments at the initial stages. Piyush Goyal has taken charge of the Ministry of Textiles and started reviewing the functioning and performance of the textile sector. During the review meetings of National Textile Corporation Ltd, the largest CPSU under the Ministry of Textiles, the minister suggested that NTC should adopt the latest methods and technology to ensure the safety of its land against encroachments and suggested using drones to survey NTC mills. Such surveillance would enable NTC to take swift action against the encroachments, making it easier to remove them from the properties owned by the government-owned company.

Drones can be operated from a distance. Additionally, the feed can be directed to software for quick analysis of the land. Surveying land from different heights and various camera angles give a better perspective of the situation based on the layout of the land. Drones have the capacity to fly at lower altitudes and capture high-resolution images at an economical price.

Based on the directions provided by Minister Piyush Goyal, NTC conducted a pilot drone survey and extracted land mapping of five mills at various locations. The previous maps and images available in NTC records were used to compare the new maps to assess any encroachments or undesired changes.
