New Delhi: The Government has sanctioned 15 PSLV launchers worth Rs 3090 Crores, which would be built during 2017-20.

The launchers proposed by Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) in the coming years i.e. till March 2017 include Ten Polar Satellite Launch Vehicles (PSLV), Two Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicles (GSLV) and one developmental flight of GSLV Mk III.

Indigenous GSLV will launch 2 ton class of communication satellites in space.

ISRO has been utilizing the Indian industry for the manufacturing and production of the various components and sub-assemblies required for the development of space technology since 1976. In order to ensure the smooth supply chain of hardware, components and sub-systems, ISRO is planning to magnify the role of industry partners by increasing the scope of work from sub-system/hardware level to system level in a phased manner. The entire gamut of activities that goes into the realization of the launch vehicles or satellites could be performed by the industry, except mission critical activities and launch operations.

This information was given by the Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) Development of North-Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh in reply to unstarred question in Lok Sabha today.
