New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Thursday congratulated ISRO scientists on the successful launch of its heaviest rocket, GSLV Mk-III.

"Successful launch of GSLV Mk-III is yet another triumph of brilliance and hardwork of our scientists. Congrats to them for the efforts," Modi said in a statement.

India successfully test fired the 630-tonne Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle-Mark III, its heaviest next generation rocket and the crew module from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh Thursday.

Precisely at 9.30 a.m., the 630 tonne Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle-Mark III (GSLV-Mark III) standing 43.43 metre tall freed itself from the second launch pad holds and with a reverberating deep throated roar, it rose into the sky.
