- Remove Indian entities from Entity List
- Remove India from country group D
I took a look Entity List today, and find it has been updated as of January 25, 2011. As for Indian entities, only remaining entities are the following Department of Atomic Energy entities:
Bhabha Atomic Research Center (BARC)
Indira Gandhi Atomic Research Center (IGCAR)
Indian Rare Earths
This means all other entities such as subsidiaries of India’s Defense Research and Development Organization (“DRDO”) and subsidiaries of the Indian Space Research Organization (“ISRO”) are no longer restricted in Entity List.
Other main change is removing from country group D. I took a look Part 740Spir - Supplement No. 1 to Part 740, Country Groups, and find India is in Group A:2 and Group B. This will change the applicable license exceptions.
