India is a member of the SAARC group and so are Nepal and many other neighbouring countries like Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Sri Lanka and others.

Their initial experimental projections fit in for leasing or sharing of space facilities. They have rightly and wisely, resorted to this option.
