The government announced on Friday that Starlink Internet Services is not licensed to provide satellite-based internet services in India, and warned the public not to subscribe to the services promised by the Elon Musk-backed firm.

The Telecom Department further requested that Starlink adhere to the legal framework for providing satellite-based communication services and that it stop from booking or rendering satellite internet services in India “with immediate effect.”

According to a statement from the Telecom Department, Starlink has begun pre-selling/booking satellite-based Starlink Internet Services in India.

The same can be seen on Starlink’s website, where users in Indian territory can book satellite-based internet services, according to the DoT.

“The Department of Telecommunications, Ministry of Communications, Government of India has stated that ‘Starlink Internet Services’ is not licensed to offer satellite-based internet services in India,” according to an official statement.

In India, a government license is required to provide satellite-based services.

It stated, “It is thus alerted to the general public that the abovementioned company has not secured any license/authorization for offering satellite-based internet services that are being booked on their website.”

“The public is cautioned not to subscribe to Starlink services being marketed,” the notification read because Starlink is not a licensee.
