Missile Technology Control Regime

About MTCR:
Established in April 1987, the voluntary MTCR aims to limit the spread of ballistic missiles and other unmanned delivery systems that could be used for chemical, biological, and nuclear attacks.
§  The MTCR regime urges its 34 members, which include most of the world’s key missile manufacturers, to restrict their exports of missiles and related technologies capable of carrying a 500-kilogram payload at least 300 kilometers or delivering any type of weapon of mass destruction.
§  Since 2008 India has been one of the five countries that are unilateral adherents to the MTCR.

Benefits for India:
§  India’s entry into the MTCR is a step closer to its Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) membership.
§  The entry into this group will shape the future of India’s engagement with not just the MTCR but also the broader global non-proliferation community.
§  Admission to the MTCR would open the way for India to buy high-end missile technology.
