As soon as we avail each data, necessary steps will be taken subsequently.”

But with the excellent mission planning, there is every probability that it will continue for another seven and a half years helping us for science operations.
Why we are speaking Chandrayaan-2 achieved 98% success is because of two objectives- one is science and the other technology presentation. In the case of a technology presentation, the completion percentage was almost full.”
