Prohibition to Fly Drones Over Mauritius During the Visit of Indian PM

Since the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, will soon travel to Mauritius for the Independence Day celebrations, a set of measures have been devised for the security of the personalities, one of which includes the prohibition to fly any drone over the island.


No drone will be authorized to fly over Mauritius on the 11th and 12th of March, when the Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, will have travelled to the island to grace the celebrations of Independence Day with his presence as guest of honor.

A communique has been issued by the Ministry of Tourism to inform the population of this instruction:-

“Notice is hereby given that in virtue of regulation 89 of the Civil Aviation Regulation 2007, I direct that drones (unmanned aircrafts) be prohibited from flying over the island of Mauritius on 11 and 12 March 2015 by reason of the security of foreign guests visiting Mauritius on the occasion of National Day celebrations.

“Any person who contravenes or fails to comply with the above prohibition shall commit an offence and shall be liable to prosecution”.

Any one not respecting the given regulation will therefore have to face the consequences and will be prosecuted.

This measure is just one of the many featuring on a strict protocol that will be implemented for these two days.

Narendra Modi will also pay a visit to the Ganga Talao. He is also expected to visit the constituency of the Mauritian Prime Minister, Sir Aneerood Jugnauth. He will thereafter address the National Assembly.
