Marut Drones-Using Technology to Solve Social Issues
Abstract Case Intro 1 Case Intro 2 Excerpts


Mosquito Eradication

The very first reason for which Marut was established was the eradication of mosquitoes. Mosquito-borne diseases like malaria, dengue, chikungunya, etc., posed a major health challenge in India, resulting in millions of deaths every year. The founders realized they were dealing with a science problem. They studied mosquitos – the various types of mosquitos, the diseases they caused, their breeding potential, etc..


Marut realised there was a potential prospect to which drone solutions could be extended. After extensive research on the agriculture sector, the company came to the conclusion that Indian farmers were exposed to a dangerous level of harmful pesticides and fertilizers which made them prone to diseases like TB and cancer. Farmers also faced challenges like soil salinity and paucity of data on soil and crop health..


Marut received a requisition from the Environment and Forests, and IT departments of Telangana to develop a drone for planting of trees using the seedball technology. After this, the company set to design the prototype, which it completed in a span of seven months..

Delivery of Medicines

On April 30, 2021, Marut rolled out Hepicopter, to deliver COVID-19 vaccines and other medical supplies in the Vikarabad district of Telangana as part of the ‘Medicines from the Sky’ project. The drones were to serve 15 public health centers (PHCs) within a 30-km radius of its central hub in the district hospital of Vikarabad..

Other Initiatives During The Covid-19 Pandemic

Marut partnered with the Government of Telangana to use drones for various COVID-related applications such as disinfection and sanitization, movement tracking, thermal analysis, and surveillance of quarantined areas..

Challenges and Opportunities

Marut was successful in putting its drones to use in various business verticals. It had also been able to collaborate with government and non-government organizations at various levels. But it was still confronted by several challenges..
