The Centre is likely to introduce a Bill to commercialise space activities in the budget session next year.
The government, responding to a question raised by Poonam Mahajan, said the Space Activities Bill 2017 aims to “facilitate the overall growth of space activities in India with higher order participation of public, non-governmental and private sector stakeholders.”
It will help the Centre establish a regulatory mechanism through an appropriate body to authorise and license space activities.
