August 27th, 2016, Q3 (Click Here): The MTCR Is not a treaty and does not impose any legally binding obligations on Partners.

 

The Business Standard and The Wire have this to say: “The operational range of the missile has often been stated to be just a shade below the 300 km threshold that the regime primarily concerns itself with. As such, the cruise missile would not have come under the MTCR’s annex of items to begin with. It is unlikely that India’s membership to the MTCR will provide a direct or significant boost to the missile’s export prospects.”

 

However, Livemint and Economic Times have this to say: “Gaining MTCR membership will allow India to sell the BrahMos missiles, which it manufactures jointly with Russia, to countries like Vietnam. The operational range of the missile is just under the 300km threshold that the regime primarily concerns itself with.”

 

Clearly, there is some confusion regarding this. But if one goes purely by the technicality part of it, the preferable answer would be option ‘a’, that is, India can sell the BrahMos to other nations because it is a sovereign nation.
