Earlier today the Government of India advised people to refrain from subscribing to Starlink, as the company is yet to be licensed. A warning was given to Starlink to stop taking bookings & rendering services. The company has made it clear that it will refund the money taken for subscription. “As has always been the case, you can receive a refund at any time,” the company said to one of its customers through E-mail as per Reuters.
Starlink is backed by tech mogul, Elon Musk & is planning to opt for a license by the end of January.
