just ignore it and enjoy the fun of the "Goras" making noise.

You can expect some cheap FPV stuff .... that is how it will affect us "Desi log"

For the present, as Saikat sir says 'Just ignore it'
Currently there doesn't even seem to be a restriction on which side of the road to drive on (at least in Indore)
But over the years, we did lose access to Safdarjung and Polo Ground (in Delhi)
So sooner or later we will need something like this (beware, it is 94 pages!)

A lot has been posted related to this earlier in many similar or somewhat similar threads.
Considering the case in US and also different cases in India that occurred in the last few days we could only conclude is to not do anything that could affect our hobby. Being hobbyist and also a responsible part of a community people should take care of not doing anything that is bad for community. We could not ignore the fact that the decision makers/lawmakers must also be having an eye on the US case. Secondly, cases like Varanasi incident and many more similar ones will add to getting unpleasant decisions from our authorities.

- What we can do is on our personal level we need not do anything that does not abides by law.
- Moreover, we could spread this message as much as we can to others who are newcomers and get allured by flying fpv platforms. We can see many threads posted by newcomers such as "want to develop flying drone/airplane/multicopter" etc. by students(mostly).
- I'm also a student, so I very well understand how attractive these things look on college/schools/institution level.
- All Indian LHS and stores should include a page (which should be a part of sections that come while placing online order)  stating all rules/regulations clearly.
- In the past few days different photographers/video makers have come up who use FPV platforms for getting footage of marriages etc. very irresponsibly. Something should be done to check this.
