WASHINGTON: The United States has lifted some of the sanctions against Indian space and nuclear entities, taking forward the Next Steps in Strategic Partnership (NSSP) between the two countries.
The US Commerce Department's decision to lift sanctions against Indian Space Research Organisation's (ISRO) subordinate entities and Department of Atomic Energy entities would ease export of some high tech items to India.

The Department also said that it has now corrected some "mistakes" in an earlier announcement by the Bureau of Industry and Security. It said for some items there is a case by case review and for others there is a presumption of approval.

The ISRO subordinate entities against which sanctions have been waived include ISRO Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network, ISRO Inertial Systemsnit, Thiruvananthapuram, Liquid Propulsion Systems Centre, Solid Propellant Space Booster Plant, Space Applications Centre, Ahmadabad, Sriharikota Space Centre, Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre, Thiruvananthapuram.
