New Commemorative: Vikram Sarabhai
« on: March 31, 2019, 03:11:51 AM »
Dear friends

2019 will be centenary year of Vikram Sarabhai. He is regarded as father of Indian Space Programme.

Sarabhai established IIM Ahmedabad and also started a programme to put India's first satellite Aryabhatt in orbit in 1975

A major space research centre of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), focusing on rocket and space vehicles for India's satellite programme is named after Vikram Sarabhai.

I hope Govt will issue commemorative coins of Rs100 on centenary of Vikram Sarabhai.

Regards
Sanjay Kansal
