New Policy to Allow Private Indian Companies to Launch Satellites


Bengaluru: K. Sivan, the Secretary of the department of space (DoS) has announced a proposal of a new Spacecom Policy that allows  private Indian companies to develop and  launch satellites and sell services to foreign customers.

The new policy will replace the existing Satcom Policy and allow the companies to set up control centres outside India and use overseas space assets.

The draft of the policy says, “The policy will have everything the Satcom Policy has in terms of protection of our assets, creation of new assets, monitoring and operations. The major changes are to encourage the private sector and renew focus on enhancing national security capabilities”.
