NEW DELHI. Pres­i­dent Pranab Mukher­jee and Vice Pres­i­dent Hamid An­sari con­grat­u­lated the ISRO on the suc­cess­ful launch of PSLV-C33 car­ry­ing IRNSS-1G, In­dia’s seventh and fi­nal in the se­ries of nav­i­ga­tion satel­lites of the In­dian Re­gional Nav­i­ga­tion Satel­lite Sys­tem (IRNSS). In a mes­sage to ISRO Chair­man AS Ki­ran Ku­mar, the Pres­i­dent said, “I ex­tend my hearty con­grat­u­la­tions to you and your en­tire team at the ISRO on the suc­cess­ful launch of PSLV-C33 car­ry­ing IRNSS-1G, the seventh and fi­nal in the se­ries of nav­i­ga­tion satel­lites of the In­dian Re­gional Nav­i­ga­tion Satel­lite Sys­tem (IRNSS).

The launch of PSLV-C33 is an im­por­tant land­mark in our space pro­gramme with In­dia now join­ing the small group of na­tions hav­ing their own re­gional satel­lite nav­i­ga­tion sys­tem. It demon­strates, yet again, In­dia’s grow­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties in space launch tech­nol­ogy. The na­tion is proud of this achieve­ment.

Kindly con­vey my greet­ings to all mem­bers of your team and all oth­ers in­volved in this great mis­sion. I wish the ISRO con­tin­ued suc­cess in its fu­ture en­deav­ours.” Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi heartily thanked and con­grat­u­lated all the ISRO sci­en­tists and team ISRO for com­plet­ing IRNSS con­stel­la­tion and ded­i­cated IRNSS to the na­tion as ‘NAVIC’ (Nav­i­ga­tion In­dian Con­stel­la­tion). He ap­pre­ci­ated In­dia’s space com­mu­nity for mak­ing the coun­try proud through such achieve­ments which have helped in im­prov­ing the life of com­mon man.
