Technology: India could have its space like ventures soon, as our scientific advisor MR. Ajay Kumar sood said that they will soon unveil the new space policy, government will encourage the space sector to develop or manufacture the space satellites in the private sector. He said, we will have our own spaceX in the next two years.
Can India have its own spaceX like ventures?

Ajay Kumar Sood statement on India have its own spaceX like ventures
To bring a change around space technologies in India, government is encouraging to manufacture the satellites that would help in various field of developments.
With the opening of the space Centre, the satellites dedicated to the various sectors such as, education, military, communication, agriculture etc. For this, the first step is the need to establish a private or space firm for carrying out space activities.
Seeking to further increase private participation, the government will soon unveil a new space policy that could see the rise of India’s own “SpaceX-like ventures”, Principal Scientific Advisor Ajay Kumar Sood has said.
Space policy is in the works. We have not been using it much, but the new technology of low earth orbit (LEO) satellites … that is a low cost game.
“There are a huge number of satellites in LEO. That will change the space sector,” said Sood, who assumed office on April 25.
He said the government will encourage manufacturing of satellites in the private sector for a range of applications from health care, agriculture to urban development and property tax estimation.
