The government has also eased the regulations and norms for drone operations, making it easier for startups like Garuda Aerospace to operate and scale.

The report also states that the drone industry has the potential to generate over one million jobs and contribute $50 billion to the GDP by 2030.

The company plans to use the proceeds of the IPO to expand its operations, scale up its production capacity, develop new products and services, enter new markets, and invest in research and development. The company also intends to collaborate with global players in the defense and aerospace sectors and explore opportunities in the emerging fields of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and blockchain.
