A team of engineers, architects and scientists was in Mauritius last month as part of the implementation of the project. This follows the Prime Minister's visit to India last February, during which an MoU was signed between the governments of India and Mauritius.
The RGSC Trust Fund was established in 1994 by a bill in parliament. The first phase of the center of Bell Village was built following a protocol signed in 1998 between the Ministry of Education and the National Council of Science Museums (NCSM) in India.
In 2007, at the tenth session of the Indo-Mauritian Joint Commission held in Mauritius, the proposal of a Hybrid Planetarium premises and a center expansion were approved. The last MOU also highlights the expansion galleries and improved existing ones.
In order to implement the agreement, an Indian team, including CEO of HMCS, was in Mauritius from 9 to 12 April. Members have had various meetings with the Mauritian party, including architects, engineers and partners in the field of science and technology.
They have set twenty months to complete the project. The Mauritian government will be responsible for the construction of the planetarium and the expansion of the exhibition galleries.
