Starlink is likely to get an approval from the Ministry of Communications to start offering its services in India. A top-tier meeting has reportedly been set up in late September 2023, where Starlink’s proposal for global mobile personal communication by satellite (GMPCS) service licence is expected to be taken up for discussion.

Upon receiving its GMPCS, Starlink would be required to get approvals from different government wings and also from the Department of Space, before taking on any orders for working towards launching operations.
