2. Zomato Ltd
Zomato is a multinational restaurant aggregator and food delivery company founded in 2008 and got listed in the Indian stock market in July 2021. The company is betting heavily on drone technology for food delivery to make the delivery process faster and more efficient.
In pursue of doing so, Zomato acquired TechEagle in 2018 to build a hub-to-hub delivery network using hybrid multi-rotor drones, which ended in June last year.
However, Zomato is still working on Drone technologies for its vision of drone-based food delivery. For this, they have tied up with multiple startups and even giants like Vodafone idea to work on the DGCA’s BVLOS sandbox.
Moreover, as the rival Swiggy may also be planning on similar drone technology for food delivery, Zomato needs to speed up on its progress in the drone industry.
Paras Defence and Space technologies is a small-cap defence company in India that is engaged in the designing, developing, manufacturing, and testing of a variety of defence and space engineering products and solutions. The company got listed on the Indian stock market in October 2021.

They are working on Heavy Lift Logistics Drones, and their Anti Drone System works on drone detection, Classification, and tracking on passive surveillance, camera sensors, and neutralization of the threat through jamming the Drone communication.
Their growth in drone technology can be understood by the fact that Zen Technologies have received orders from the Indian Air force worth Rs 1.6 billion for the supply of CUAS i.e. counter unmanned aircraft systems. Along with drones, Zen Technologies also builds training solutions that develop combat-ready soldiers.
RattanIndia Enterprises Limited is the flagship company of Rattanindia Group for its new-age growth businesses and midcap publicly listed company in India. In Sept 2021, RattanIndia Enterprises announced the launch of its drone business with its wholly-owned subsidiary NeoSky India Ltd.
