About the Institution

NALSAR, Centre for Aerospace and Defence Laws (CADL) is organising its “Aerospace and Defence Laws Lecture Series”, a Webinar series, which will bring together academics, legal practitioners, and experts from the field, to critically explore the education in Aviation, Defence and Space Laws, and explore the current trends in these sectors.

About the NALSAR, CADL’s Webinar

NALSAR aims to attain long-time technological, economic and industrial gains, the Indian government has opened its space sector to private players and also intends to set- up a new organisation, namely, The Indian National Space Promotion and Authorisation Centre (In-Space).

In-Space will promote and guide private industries in space activities through policymaking and by regulating them. It provides level playing field in building satellites and rockets. However, for a private participant to launch its missions, the Space Activities Bill, 2017 has to come into force. This implies that there is ample scope of discussion in enabling the transparency and certainty to the Private participants.

To further look into this development and get insights from the prominent persons from the Space sector, CADL has scheduled its 4th Webinar in “Aerospace and Defence Law Lecture Series” titled “Unlocking India’s Private Space Sector: Legal and Policy Challenges” on July 19, 2020, from 3:30 PM to 5:30 PM IST

In the webinar the experts will tell us about the current developments in the Indian space sector; the benefits of the establishment of In-Space; operational, legal and policy hurdles faced by the private players participating in the Indian space industry, especially, the start-ups and the small-medium-enterprises; and their predictions for what’s ahead for the Indian Private Space Sector?
