“In brief, it will offer clarity in the role of the components set up (in the recent past),” Union Minister Jitendra Singh said.
He said the policy would aim to enhance the role of the Department of Space, boost activities of Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) missions and give a larger participation of research, academia, startups and industry.
