Apparently, the road distance from Kangkong to Paglam is about 120 km which takes around 4 hours to cover.” “Our drone delivered vaccines for the animal husbandry department 12 times faster than the ground transportation,” he said. 

Additionally, the latest drones were inaugurated by Tage Taki, Agriculture minister in the government of Arunachal Pradesh. The state of Arunachal Pradesh is also working to improve the supply chain of the animal husbandry department. Vaccines are supplied from Lower Dibang Valley. He said- “It is a historic event as drone technology has not been used before to deliver life-saving drugs and medicines in the veterinary sector. The success of the experimental launch has paved the way for the further use of this technology in the sectors of Agriculture, Horticulture Etc.” 

Joint Secretary, department of animal husbandry and dairy for the government of India, Upamanyu Basu who was also present at the event, said, “GOI is in the process of developing many more technologies which will aid the farmers in their work.
