With an aim to promote economic empowerment and financial autonomy among women in rural areas, Prime Minister Narendra Modi spearheaded the NaMo Drone Didi and Lakhpati Didi initiatives.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has distributed more than 1,000 drones to rural woman farmers.
The PM handed over the drones on Monday to 1,000 women trained as Namo Drone Didis — skilled drone pilots for agricultural purposes at the Sashakt Nari Viksit Bharat programme held in New Delhi.
He also disbursed bank loans to Lakhpati Didis (prosperous sisters), a self-help group (SHG) members to become financially self-reliant.
Addressing the audience, Modi highlighted the opportunities that the programme would bring the nation.

The drones, mostly manufactured by Garuda Aerospace, will not only help the women in tasks like crop monitoring, fertilizer spraying and seed sowing, but can also be used to deliver milk, groceries, medicines and medical samples.

Modi added that in India, SHGs have forged a new chapter in the realm of women's empowerment. Over the past decade, the remarkable growth of the groups in our country had become a subject of study.
