Final Conclusion and Proposal

  • Kumar AbhijeetEmail author


It is concluded that national space legislation is largely needed for three reasons—first to fulfil international obligations, second to address the specific requirements of India and finally to enable the participation of non-governmental entities. India has a multifaceted space programme, each facet of which involves its own distinct legality. It will be a herculean task to bring all the dimensions in one piece of legislation. In light of the requirements of international space law, specific needs of India, state practices towards national space legislation, model space law proposed by the International Law Association and the recommendations of the United Nations on national space legislation and that of the Bangalore Declaration 2015, draft framework legislation has been proposed that provides general regulatory mechanism for all space activities in India.
