Meanwhile, NTA also said that new process has been started soon as per the Public Procurement Act 2063.

Nine international companies had submitted their letters of intent in developing the satellite. NTA had selected five companies and had sought financial proposals from them. However, NTA said that these firms did not respond to NTA’s call on time. .
