ISRO invites private companies to launch another spaceport, new portal to be built in this state

New Delhi: India's Space Department ISRO has invited private companies to prepare its new launch portal. For this, ISRO has released a draft of its new space transport policy, which will enable private companies to create launching portals in the country. It may be noted that the first and only Satish Dhawan space centre of the ISRO is located at Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh. Now another such space centre is being set up at Thoothukudi near Kulsekarpattinam in Tamil Nadu for which ISRO has called private companies in the country.

ISRO with the help of the new space transport policy, private companies will be able to use ISRO's launching portals for their mission. At the same time, the draft also mentions that any Indian company that wants to create a launch portal outside the country will have to seek permission from the IN-SPACe (Indian National Space Promotion and Authorization Centre). State that IN-SPACe is an independent body built under ISRO, which has recently been set up to oversee the inauguration of the space sector.

The role of the private sector in India's space sector has been very limited so far. Private-sector services have been taken up only for less important purposes, but now the government is considering sharing ISRO facilities with the private sector as well. According to a government announcement, India's private sector will play an important role in India's space-related programmes in the near future. On the other hand, the Department of Space says that the share of private agencies in providing launch services globally has increased and some of them have become important players in the commercial market.
