Abstract: India has launched the first Indian Scientific Antarctic Expedition in 1981. Since then there were 28 scientific expeditions to Antarctica. Polar research in India has witnessed many significant developments for the last twenty-eight years. Many noteworthy projects and programs have been developed to promote Polar Research in India during the residency of Shri Kapil Sibal, Hon’ble Minister for Science & Technology and Earth Sciences, Government of India. The XXX Antarctica Treaty Consultative Meeting (ATCM) held on 30th April 2007 at New Delhi and the Indian research base ‘Himadri’, established in 2008 at Arctic, are the tangible mile stones of above projects. Shri Sibal has visited the Indian research base at Antarctic and Arctic and has personally experience the harsh working environment of our dedicated scientists at the Indian research stations of Antarctic and Arctic. Among the countries associated with Polar Research Shri Sibal is the only Minister, who has under taken the torturous and risky challenge of going to Antarctica and Arctic and has a first hand experience of working environment of researchers. IJMS presents the response of Shri Sibal on the ongoing projects and future prospects of Polar Research Program of India.
