The Indian Lunar Exploration Programme (Sanskrit: चन्द्रयान Chandrayāna, lit: Moon vehicle pronunciation (help·info)), also known as the Chandrayaan programme, is an ongoing series of outer space missions by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). The programme incorporates a lunar orbiter and future lunar lander & rover spacecraft.
The Chandrayaan (Indian Lunar Exploration Programme) programme is a multiple mission programme; as of mid-2016 only one orbiter has been sent to the Moon, using ISRO's workhorse PSLV rocket. The second spacecraft is being readied for a late 2016-early 2017 launch using the GSLV rocket.
The first phase includes the launch of the first lunar orbiters.
The second phase, under preparation as of 2018, will incorporate spacecraft capable of soft-landing on the Moon and will also deploy a robotic rover on the lunar surface.
