Getting an Unmanned Aircraft Operator Permit (UAOP)
I do not see this as a requirement for bloggers or YouTubers, who are using the drone to take some videos of beautiful locations for small videos. You cannot fly a drone above 200 ft without a UAOP, so be careful, most of the drones will fly above 200 ft.

Fees for UAOP (Drone Pilot registration fees) INR 25,000
Every 5 years INR 10,000 for renewal
