India’s own GPS system called NavIC (Navigation with Indian Constellation) is set to become a reality after the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) signs a MoU with CSIR National Physical Laboratory (NPL) for time and frequency traceability services. The indigenous GPS system will be independent and free from the US clock system. The MoU will help the desi GPS sync with the Indian Standard Time (IST).
