ISRO suffered a setback after its Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) failed to put the GISAT-1 Earth observation satellite (EOS) satellite onto its intended orbit due to a technical anomaly.

Indian Space Research Organisation revealed that the anomaly was in the cryogenic upper stage minutes after launch.

This is ISRO second mission of the year to place an earth observation satellite (GISAT-1) by a GSLV rocket 

51.70-metre tall rocket GSLV-F10/EOS-03 successfully lifted off from the second launch pad at the spaceport as planned.

Mission could not be accomplished fully due to performance anomaly, said Range Operations Director in Mission Control Centre.

Jitendra Singh, union minister of state (MoS) in charge of the department of space, said that the mission can be rescheduled sometime later.
