This launch has demonstrated, yet again, India’s increasing space capabilities. I understand this is the first operational flight of GSLV carrying an indigenously developed Cryogenic Upper Stage (CUS). This will help study weather patterns as well as support surface-level search and rescue operations.

Please convey my greetings to all members of your team of scientists, engineers, technologists and others associated with this mission”.
