Indian Space Program began in 1963. It was initiated primarily for scientific purposes. However, since the inception, it was proven to be benificial for both civilian and military purposes. Especially, INSAT series of satellites made an major impact on telecommunication scenario in India.

Since 15 August 1969 the management of space research and its utilization for peaceful purposes has been controlled by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO). In 1972 the Indian Government set up the Space Commission and entrusted a Department of Space (DOS) with responsibility for conducting the country's space activities.

All of ISRO's commercial and marketing activities are handled by Antrix Corp. Ltd, which was created on November 1992 by ISRO. Antrix is a sanskrit word. The meaning of Antrix is space.
