政府已通过财务审批，在未来四年投资1090亿卢比用于发射30枚PSLV火箭和10枚GSLV Mk III火箭。
NEW DELHI: In a big boost to the country's space programme, the Union Cabinet on Wednesday gave the financial approval of Rs 10,911 crore for the launch of 30 PSLV and 10 GSLV Mk III rockets + in the next four years.
新德里消息：:为大力推动印度的航天计划，印度联邦内阁周三通过财务审批，在未来四年投资1091.1亿卢比用于发射30枚PSLV火箭和10枚GSLV Mk III火箭。
"With the Cabinet approval of Rs 4,338 crore for 10 launches of Isro's heaviest rocket GSLV Mk III (Isro's fat boy) in the next four years, we will be able to launch heavier satellites weighing over 4 tonne. This will be a big leap forward in space technology as we don't have to depend on foreign spaceports for launching heavier satellites," minister of state in PMO Jitendra Singh said. He said, "This GSLV Mk III programme has materialised and evolved in the last three to four years under the Modi government. It is in kee with the Make-in-India programme and is totally an indigenous mission. With this GSLV programme, Isro will also be able to launch not only mini satellites of foreign countries but also foreign satellites of over 4 tonne weight."
“内阁批准在未来四年投资433.8亿卢比用于发射10枚GSLV Mk III 火箭(ISRO取绰号为“胖男孩”)，我们将能够发射重达4吨以上的卫星。”这将是空间技术的一大飞跃，我们不需要依靠国外的太空港来发射更重的卫星。他说：“在过去三到四年中，这项GSLV Mk III计划在莫迪政府的领导下得以实现和发展。它与“印度制造”计划保持一致，完全是一项自主研发的任务。通过GSLV计划，ISRO不仅可以发射外国的微型卫星，而且还可以发射重量超过4吨的外国卫星。”
Singh said, "The Cabinet has also given clearance for 30 launches of PSLV rockets+ with the financial sanction of Rs 6,573 crore." He said private participation in Isro space programmes is also being encouraged recently.
"Besides other space missions, India should look forward to the upcoming Chandrayaan-2 launch in October-November as it will be a significant achievement in space programme for the country," the minister said.
Talking to TOI after the Cabinet approval, Isro chairman K Sivan said, "It is the happiest moment for all of us in Isro. The Cabinet approval for the PSLV and GSLV rocket launches will give a big boost to our space programmes. The increase in satellite launches in the areas of communication, earth observation and navigation will not only be significant for our space agency but also benefit the common man."
Sivan said, "The financial sanction for 40 rockets is in line with the vision of PM Modi, who wants to push the use of space technology in social and development programmes of the government for the benefit of the masses."

Modi ji proved how techno-savvy he is when he attended Indiaâ s mars orbit entry personally. Today he proved once again that countryâ s space program and technology is important for him.

One of these launches should be used to launch Rahul, Chidambaram, Lalu, Mayawati, Kejriwal,Dev Gowda and Pawar into outer space. Though their looted wealth might weigh more than 4 tonnes.
