"I congratulate the scientists of ISRO for successfully launching the GSLV D5. My good wishes are with them," Modi said.

The rocket successfully lifted off from the Sriharikota spaceport on Sunday afternoon.

The Rs 365 crore launch mission has a twin purpose -- to flight-test the cryogenic engine designed and built by the ISRO, and to put in orbit the GSAT-14 communication satellite.
