Following the deadly April 25 earthquake, Nepal has banned drones in its skies. Reportedly, the country is apprehensive that drones may illegally capture pictures of its valuable heritage sites and leak sensitive information.

The authority also declared that those who want to research in Nepal and need the assistance of drones would need to seek permission from the Civil Aviation Authority. However, no permission would be given to fly drones in the restricted areas.

After the disastrous 7.9 magnitude quake, which resulted in more than 7,500 fatalities, a few foreign media and other aid agencies relied on drones to check the loss of devastation and broadcast the information.

However, the civil aviation agency came to know that a few of the drones were clicking pictures and shooting videos of valuable heritages of Nepal.

Flying these objects without consent would draw penal action as per the laws of local civil aviation.
