India has successfully demonstrated its space prowess for a while now. However, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has monopolized this sector for a very long time. For India to become a global space power, it is essential to bring in the private players on board for a higher success rate.
Currently, the new start-ups are emerging in the space sector for undertaking ambitious projects like launching palm-sized satellites and propulsion of satellites using cleaner fuels. With the promise of high returns of the investment in this sector, there is an increased inflow of investments into these start-ups.
For the success of these new companies, it is essential for the Indian Government to provide a law that assures ease of doing business and faster promotion of these aspiring projects. The Space Activities Bill, 2017 is a major leap forward in this direction.

The world is facing a continuous change due to the ever-increasing scientific and technological development and innovations. These developments have changed the political, social and economic lives of mankind.
The history in itself is defined by the improved technologies and new scientific discoveries like wheels, stone tools, steam engines, trains, automated machines, computers, etc. Now, we are at the cusp of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, the one that is dominated by technologies that far exceed human intelligence.
These innovations and technological growth may help mankind solve existing problems like poverty, death due to calamities, accidents, etc. These developments are fast-paced and ever-growing.
Currently, the laws and government policies are slow in preparing for these new technologies and scientific discoveries. The Indian Government must take immediate steps to make full use of the new and exhilarating possibilities arising out of the Industrial Revolution 4.0.
Currently, the world is facing many threats like climate change, isolationism, global conflicts, unemployment, poverty, and inequality. Simultaneously, with the advent of the Industrial revolution 4.0, the world is also facing exciting changes like the emergence of self-driving cars, 5G networks, etc. However, the Industrial Revolution 4.0 has its downside. It is argued that, if the change is not addressed properly there will be negative implications like a further increase in unemployment and poverty crisis. The concept of Globalization 4.0 seeks to address these issues and promote inclusive and sustainable growth.
Artificial Intelligence (AI), also known as the Industrial Revolution 4.0, has been making deep strides in scientific and technological innovation across different fields.
