India France 50 Years of Space Cooperation 2

Issue Date: 2015-04-10

India and France heralded a new era of bilateral cooperation with the establishment of formal diplomatic relations in 1947. Since then, the extent and scope of cooperation between the two countries has grown steadily and the bilateral relations between the two countries have now expanded in many areas ranging from trade and investment, culture, science and technology and education to space cooperation.

Space cooperation between India and France has now turned 50, making it India’s oldest and most important collaboration with a European nation. Exchanges at the start of the 1960s between what would later become the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) and the fledging France National Space Agency (CNES) laid the foundations of a low-key but sustainable relationship between the two space agencies. This partnership for and through space has often served as a bridgehead of the French-Indian strategic partnership.

Department of Posts is happy to release a set of two stamps and miniature sheet on the theme of India-France: 50 Years of Space Cooperation featuring one stamp each on the two satellites Megha-Tropiques and SARAL.
