India has taken a historic stride towards opening up its space sector for private participation with the creation of IN-SPACe. I have met many exuberant youngsters in the past with eyes set on space who unfortunately could not walk through the system in the absence of a transparent policy framework. The initiative of our Hon'ble Prime Minister in bringing in a 'new space regime' has laid a solid foundation for India to multiply its capabilities in space by several fold. This new body would play a role of a guide for space entrepreneurs. Existing policies are being suitably tweaked to become more accommodative and inclusive, and less ambiguous. This makes it easier for the companies to obtain licenses and participate in end-to-end space activities.
