Space Law in India
India’s space program began almost 60 years ago, but India still doesn’t have a space law governing space activities. It has been long overdue for India to introduce a space law. However, India is a signatory to the Moon Treaty of 1979.
Space activities in India have been fully managed by the Department of Space since its establishment in 1972. Prior to that, the Department of Atomic Energy was responsible for all administrative activities of the Indian space program. Until recently, there was never any need to enact a national space law or policy in India, as space was seen as an international issue rather than a national issue.
The Space Activities Bill 2017 was an attempt by the Government of India to bring significant changes to India’s space policy.
India’s Spacecom Policy 2020 which is expected to promote private investment is likely to come anytime soon. The policy aims to formulate norms, guidelines, and procedures including approval-mechanism to provide secure communication in India.
In June 2020, the Indian government established a new organization called ‘IN-SPACE’ (Indian National Space Promotion and Authorization Centre). IN-SPACE is a single window nodal agency set up to facilitate the commercialization of space activities in India.
Global Space Industry
The space industry is growing exponentially. The value of the global space economy rose to $447B in 2020 and is projected to grow to $1 trillion by 2040. However, India’s share is only 2%, offering good potential for the new players.
Legal Challenges in Space Industry
The space sector is one of the most exciting growth areas for the Indian space industry, but it is also subject to complex and rapidly evolving regulatory requirements and India’s unique commercial challenges.
