Ya'll Nibbiars there is currently the Defence Space Agency and other similar organizations but what now needed is a full fledged space force yes it will cost more and will increase the already stressed burden on the small defence budget but either create a new agency to better handle the space asset or lose. The Chinese already has a Cyber and Space Command and the Russian are giving more priority to the Space Command. We need a full fledged space force of equal if not greater budget than the ISRO.

The USSF and NRO has a combined 130 plus satellites and plus other launch programmes in development. Can't really one the DSA and ISRO. Need a full Fledge Service.

Ya'll Nibbiars India currently has 13 Military satellites in the Orbit but there is often Dulaney and break in command depaite the DSA there is still hardly interoperability of the satellites by the various services. Need a unified and full fledged command capable of better managing the assets and also the road map head.

Ya'll Nibbiars simply stated the various services officer and personels are not fully trained for the space operations. And need more than just a DSA we need a full fledged agency capable of training the Personels fully just for the Space operations. And also this will help in potentials future road map. As this will be replicated by the other nations. After the USSf and the PLASSF more such space forces will emerge. And need to be ahead in this domain's.

Weaponisation of space is a bad idea actually. I know world is going for it, maybe in future you could see spaceforce’s spaceship’s fighting each other in exosphere, and it will look modern then in future which looks way too futuristic.

Ya'll Nibbiars our space assets are already extremely vulnerable and there are already three full fledged intertgated space forces. More will emerges. Need to come in this domain's quickly. And please leave this Nehru, Moraji Desai Motion of the Nuclear weapons and the Spy Agency is bad.
