Government receives 27 proposals from private entities for undertaking various space activities in India

The proposals include building and launching of launch vehicles, building, owning and operating Satellites, providing Satellites based services, establishing Ground segments, Research Partnerships and providing Mission services.

Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) Science & Technology; Minister of State (Independent Charge) Earth Sciences; MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh today said that 27 proposals from private entities were received so far for undertaking various space activities in India. In a written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha, he said the types of proposals include building and launching of Launch vehicles, building, owning and operating Satellites, providing Satellites based services, establishing Ground segments, Research Partnerships and providing Mission services.

The global space economy is poised to grow over a trillion USD in the next two decades. With the space sector reforms, Indian Private Space Industry is slated to contribute to the core elements of the global space economy ─ space-based services, launch services, manufacturing of launch vehicles and satellites, the establishment of the ground segment and launch infrastructure ─ to a considerable extent.

 

Participation of the private sector, including academic institutions, start-ups and industries in end-to-end space activities is expected to expand the national space economy, generate more employment opportunities and create better manufacturing facilities.
