No drone during Delhi-Chennai match
A senior DDCA official told Mail Today that only field cameras will be used as the drone was not allowed by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA). “Prime Minister Narendra Modi is visiting BJP headquarters in New Delhi because of ticket (Lok Sabha polls) distribution. We asked MHA’s permission but they didn’t give us. Also “The office (BJP) is near to Feroze Shah Kotla stadium and MHA said that the camera quality of drone (frequency of broadcasting) is really very good, so it will be risky to use it as PM visiting BJP office and other VIPs as well.” Star Sports has the DGCA (Directorate General of Civil Aviation) permission. 2018 has seen the rise of drones at the IPL with BCCI engaging these instruments in almost every game.
