The country’s first-ever National Space Policy is in the final process of approval under which the satellite industry would be regulated in the country, well-placed sources have informed ProPakistani.

Under the policy, a National Space Agency would be established in the country, and satellite service providers intending to provide satellite services in the country would be required to register themselves and obtain a Non-Objection Certificate (NOC), sources said.

The policy is expected to be approved any time soon by the federal government as it has the consensus of all stakeholders.

The draft policy was formulated by the Ministry of Information Technology and Telecommunication in collaboration with the Space & Upper Atmosphere Research Commission (SUPARCO) and shared with various ministries for feedback.

Sources said that Pakistan has no space policy as of now, due to which the country is facing difficulty in achieving a wide range of objectives in economics, commercial, educational, research, and scientific domains. The National Space Policy (NSP) will determine the direction of Pakistan in the field of space. The policy will aim to enhance the role of the space sector, promote mission activities, and increase public partnerships between research, education, start-ups, and industry.


    • SUPARCO is already headed by Pakistan Army General. Musharraf handed over SUPARCO to Army and since then its performance went down rather than going up. .

  • SUPARCO is taken over by Pakistan Army since Musharraf’s time. SUPARCO has a budget in billions. We should ask Pak Army that where those billions went in the past 20 years.
    How come you can expect excellent from a General of Pakistan Army? Why Civilian Scientists and Engineers are not allowed to head SUPARCO?
