New Delhi: President Pranab Mukherjee and Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday congratulated Indian scientists on the successful launch of the country's fourth navigation satellite.



In his message to ISRO Chairman A.S. Kiran Kumar, Mukherjee said: "My heartiest congratulations to you and your entire team at the Indian Space Research Organisation for the successful launch of PSLV-C27, carrying the IRNSS-1D."



"I am very happy to know that this is the fourth in the series of seven satellites of the Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System. I understand the IRNSS-1D will provide navigation, tracking and mapping services which will take us closer to setting up our own navigation system."



The nation is proud of this achievement which has demonstrated, yet again, India's increasing space capabilities, he said.



The prime minister also congratulated the scientists.



"Launch of satellite IRNSS-1D is yet another manifestation of the exemplary efforts and utmost brilliance of our scientists. Congrats to them," Modi said.



India on Saturday successfully put its fourth navigation satellite into orbit in copy book style, bringing the country a step closer to having its own satellite navigation system.
