Now private companies will also be able to launch rockets in India. They can launch rocket launch sites within and outside the country by taking permission from the government. Along with this, India’s Space Department is being given a chance to prepare the launch site of ISRO. For this, ISRO has issued a draft of its new space policy.
Opportunity will be available in new Space Space Center Tamil Nadu
ISRO’s first and only Satish Dhawan Space Center (SDSC) is located at Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh. Now another similar space center is being built at Thoothukudi near Kulasekarapattinam in Tamil Nadu. For this, ISRO wants to give Maca to private companies of the country.
The draft of the new policy states that companies will have to take consent from IN-SPACe (Indian National Space Promotion and Authorization Centre). IN-SPACe is a part of ISRO which works independently. It has recently been created to manage the space sector.
