Union Cabinet approves ratification of ISA framework

Union Cabinet has given its ex-post facto approval for MNRE’s proposal for the ratification of International Solar Alliance’s (ISA) framework by India. ISA was launched jointly by the Indian and French governments in November 2015 at the COP 21 meeting of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. It aims to bring together more than 121 solar resource-rich countries for carrying out coordinated research, mobilising low-cost financing and rapidly deploying solar power projects. India has already committed the required support of operationalisation of ISA.
