The Prime Minister proposed establishing new, lofty objectives, noting the accomplishments of Indian space programs, such as the successful Chandrayaan-3 and Aditya-L1 missions recently. He issued these directives during a meeting on the nation's manned space program, Gaganyaan, whose maiden mission is scheduled for 2025.

In addition, Modi urged Indian scientists to engage in interplanetary projects, such as the delivery of a lander to Mars and an orbiter to Venus.

For its part, the Department of Space Research will create a lunar exploration schedule. This comprises building a new launch pad, developing the Next Generation Launch Vehicle (NGLV), and completing the Chandrayaan series of missions.
