The Indian National Committee for Space Research (INCOSPAR) was set up in 1962 by the Indian Government under Dr. Vikram Sarabhai to formulate the Indian Space Program. At the time, the committee was part of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, led by M. G. K. Menon. The committee took over the responsibilities of the Department of Atomic Energy in Space science and research. The then director of the DAE, Dr. Homi Bhabha, was instrumental in creation of the Committee.
