For past few days, I was busy tying up with a logistics fulfilment partner for my Ecom company www.celebstall.com. I was also reading articles about how the drone technology will be used for commercial purposes. Google, Amazon, and many other players are working towards the last mile dash through drone delivery. In future, literarily, things will fall from the sky :) This made me wonder, can such a model exist in India?
