The Indian space programme started 60 years back is based on the concept of fulfilling societal needs. India achieved self-sufficiency on building upstream technologies with indigenised effort. Now it is the time for technology adoption for various sectors for increasing the country’s economy in multiple folds. The space technology shall be one of the best enablers for the country, considering vast agriculture, water resources, urbanisation and transport. After unlocking the space sector, ISRO acts as a facilitator to many non-governmental enterprises in scaling up the opportunities and contributing to the economy and technological development of the country. ISRO also concentrates more on R&D, space science missions and capacity building.
