The Indian Space Research Organisation, ISRO, has successfully launched the country’s new communication satellite CMS-01 in the intended orbit in space. The workhorse rocket PSLV-C50 carrying the satellite lifted off from the second launch pad of the Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota at 15.41 hours as planned. In just about 21 minutes, the launch mission was accomplished and the satellite was injected into the geo-syncronous transfer orbit.

The ISRO Chairman Dr K Sivan congratulated the team ISRO for the feat and said the solar panels of the payload have been deployed and it has been taken over by the Satellite Team of the national space agency. He said, it will be brought to the final orbit by December 21 after a series of the usual maneuvers to render its telecommunication service in the Extended C-Band.
