Editorial : Joining the elite non-proliferators


The editorial delves into India’s recent adventure with four global non-proliferation clubs.

Important points

  • India recently gained admission into Missile Technology Control Regime one of the four  global non-proliferation clubs.
  • The success of entry into MTCR was evened out by failure to get Nuclear Supplier Group’s (another global non-proliferation club) membership.
  • The other two global non-proliferation clubs are: The Australia Group and Wasenaar group.


  • India’s official entry into MTCR carries with it many benefits like yielding of state of art defence technologies.
  • China has yet not been given MTCR membership thus recent Indian admission gives india leverage to discuss NSG issues using MTCR as bargaining chip.
  • MTCR entry broadly suggests the acceptance of India’s verifiable export control and its perceived potential as a supplier of and market for sophisticated defence technologies.
  • MTCR admission is indeed a positive development atleast much better than notoriety of being related with AQ Khans etc.
  • However many strands of interlocking strategic interests need to be untangled before trade in sensitive defence technology globally will become a reality for India.
