Seventh flight of the GSLV Mk-II

ISRO Scientists at the Mission Control Centre, including its
Chairman Dr K Sivan, were watching the course of the flight
with bated breath. About 19 minutes after lift off, the 2,250 kg GSAT-7A would
get separated from the launch vehicle and injected into the
orbit. This was a record seventh mission for ISRO in 2018.
This is the seventh flight of the GSLV Mk-II with indigenous
cryogenic stage and the third successive successful GSLV
mission this year.
