Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi inaugurated the headquarters of the Indian National Center for Space Promotion and Authorization (IN-SPACe) in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. The project was approved by the Union Cabinet in June 2020.
The center was inaugurated with an aim to ensure maximum private participation in the space sector.
The PM was accompanied by Union Home Minister Mr.Amit Shah during the event. The Prime Minister took a view of and inspected the headquarters of IN-SPACe after the inauguration.
IN-SPACe will be the nodal agency, which will allow space activities and non-government private entities to use the Department of Space-related facilities.
The promotion and enabling of private entities in the space sector will provide a major fillip to the space sector and open up new vistas of opportunity for India’s talented youth.
