    India will become the 35th member of the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) this week. The development is not only be a diplomatic victory for Prime Minister Narendra Modi but also burnish India's credentials for the membership of the Nuclear Suppliers (NSG).

    According to Reuters, the members of the MTCR have agreed to admit India to the 34 member anti-proliferation grouping. Modi will be meeting US President Barack Obama in Washington later today and the two are set to discuss prospects of India's membership to the NSG.

    Ever since securing an India specific waiver from the NSGin 2008, New Delhi has been keen to become a member of multi-later export control regimes like the NSG, MTCR, the Wassenaar Arrangement and Australia Group. Nearly all the major suppliers of high technology or militarily sensitive dual use technology are members of these regimes. Membership to these groups will help India in participating in the global commerce in advanced technology.

    Reuters reported that the deadline for the MTCR members to object to India's admission to the group expired on Monday, and India's admission followed automatically under this 'silent procedure'.

    On Sunday, India had found support from Switzerland for its bid to become a member of the 48-member NSG. China is opposed to India's membership of the NSG, while the US has been New Delhi's principal backer. Modi will also try securing Mexico's support for India's NSG membership when he lands there later this week. The NSG could take a decision on the issue at its plenary in South Korea later this month.

    Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Vikas Swarup today termed the PM's Switzerland visit "a meeting of mind on the issue of black money and tax evasion" and opens doors for further cooperation between the two. The PM landed in Washington today. His meeting with the US President will be two hour long over a working lunch. Modi today met prominent US think tanks, including Brookings Institute, Council on Foreign Relations, Center for American Progress, Atlantic Council, Hudson Institute, Center for National Interest, Global Energy Capital, Carnegie Endowment, Asia Group, Pew Research Center, the US Institute of Peace and Foundation for Defence of Democracies.

    India’s national progress report, which underlines the various steps the country has taken on nuclear security – updating export controls for companies manufacturing nuclear technology, taking “robust strides” towards implementing nuclear safeguards, setting up an inter-ministerial counter-smuggling team, using low-enriched uranium instead of high-enriched uranium (HEU) and shutting down the only reactor using HEU, setting up 23 response centres across the country to take care of any nuclear or radiological emergency and putting a cyber security architecture in place.

    4 out of 5 members in UNSC are members of MTCR.
    Plus it will make missile trade easy. It will further strengthen our bid for permanent seat in UNSC.
    Next step must be NSG. :)
    Joining such treaties one by one may bear support for UNSC.

    Distant, not impossible.
    How long China will oppose?
    1 year, 2 years, 5 years, 10 years or 20 years?
    UNSC is club of major forces. As India becomes a mature power, we will get into UNSC. Sooner or later.

    For the bosses in the armed forces it has great benefits because they have one more avenue to import.
    For US it has benefits because now they will dictate what India should be making.
    For politicos in power it has benefits because now they can look better before Indian expats.
    For Indian expats too it has benefits because now they have done their bit for 'their country'.
    For politicos not in power yet, it has benefits because by the time the private sector projects are going to come up there will be a whole new gravy train and they too will partake of the benefits.
    For private sector it has benefits because now they can do joint-ventures for 'manufacturing' advanced missiles and UAVs.
    For public sector it has benefits because now they will begin to look better to the main 'agents of change' who can hope to become Chairmans and MDs of these PSUs.
    For Chinese it has benefits that India now will not be able to transfer tech that goes beyond 300/300 to any of their significant competition.
    For Pakistanis it has benefits because now they can hope to pull down Indian R&D in missilery.
    For Russians it has benefits because now they can do all overtly and get credit for it.
    For Indian public - well yeh upar list main, mostly Indian public ka hissa hi to hain. So benefits for Indian public too.

    So you see all benefits no sweat.

    Now the NSG benefits is the next thing to be looked at.
