ISRO chairman K Sivan said all activities related to the third lunar mission were going on smoothly.
The ISRO is planning to launch Chandrayaan-3 probably in November next year.
The Vikram lander module attempted a soft landing on a small patch of lunar highland smooth plains on September 7.
Boys are less likely to tell a family member about their experiences with abuse. Boys are 89% less likely than girls to reach out for psychiatric support after they have been victims of sexual violence.
The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) continues to make all-out efforts to establish a link with Chandrayaan-2's 'Vikram' lander, now lying on the lunar surface after a hard-landing.
ISRO Chief Dr Sivan, however, added that no communication with the lander had been established so far. 'We are trying to contact,' he said.
India's attempt to land "Vikram" on the lunar surface suffered a last-minute setback when the lander lost communication with ground stations.
The ground station lost contact with the Lander minutes before its touchdown on the Moon's South Pole early on Saturday.
The space agency said the mission represented a significant technological leap compared to the previous missions, which brought together an Orbiter, Lander and Rover to explore the unexplored south pole of the Moon.
India fell short of leaving its imprint on the moon by a little over 2.1 km. Vikram, the Chandrayaan-2 lander, lost communication with ground stations minutes before it was supposed to land on the lunar surface.
In the end, it was the tail-end of the fifteen-minute period that proved to be tricky and the Vikram lander lost communication with ground stations.
In early hours of Saturday, ISRO's plan to soft-land Vikram near the Moon’s south pole did not go as per the script when the lander lost communication with ground stations during its final descent.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, flanked by his security personnel, was moving towards his car when ISRO Chairman Dr K. Sivan approached him. It appeared that Dr Sivan wanted to thank PM Modi after his inspiring speech to scientists.
Before taking to the dais, PM Modi shook hands with scientists and lauded their efforts. The prime minister was speaking in the backdrop of Chandrayaan-2 lander Vikram losing communication with ground stations.
Chandrayaan-2, a follow-on mission to the Chandrayaan-1 venture launched more than a decade ago, comprises an orbiter, lander (Vikram) and rover (Pragyan).
The images of the Moon were taken by Chandrayaan-2 at a height of about 2650 km from Lunar surface on August 21, 2019, ISRO said.
