KTR: State Govt Encourages Emerging Technologies
Today the Telangana government embarked on the beginning of supply of medicines through drones, said IT minister KT Rama Rao. KTR said that he would look into the usage of technology and added that the technology, which does not come into use to the commoner, is a waste.
The minister on Saturday launched the 'Medicine From Sky' project in Vikarabad along with the union minister Jyothiraditya Sindiya.
At the event, KTR said that the Telangana government would encourage the emerging technologies, and the medicine is being distributed with advanced technology.
Medicines and bloods can be distributed through drones in case of emergencies. "Not only in the health industry, the drones can also be used in various sectors," Rama Rao added.
For the first time in India, Covid vaccines have been delivered in Vikarabad through drones. 'Medicine From the Sky's a first-of-its-kind project launched to deliver the vaccines and essentials to remote areas using drones.
