IndiaNewsonWeb: 15 Apr, 2017, India is going to launch a satellite for the entire South Asia region soon, which would be beneficial to all the neighbors except Pakistan. Indian Space Research Center (ISRO) can launch 'South Asia Satellite' on May 5, which was announced in 2014 by PM Modi as 'gift for its neighboring countries'.

ISRO Chairman AS Kiran Kumar told that the plan is to launch the satellite in the first week of May and Pakistan is not involved in this project. According to ISRO sources, this communication satellite (GSAT-9) will be launched from the Sriharikota space station through the agency's GSLV-09 rocket.

Kiran Kumar told that during the launch, this satellite of 2,195 masses will take 12 Ku-Band transponders. According to Kiran Kumar, Pakistan does not want to be part of this project. According to sources, this satellite has been designed to be active on its mission for 12 years.

While announcing this satellite during Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Kathmandu in 2014, it was said to be a gift to neighbors of India. The name of this satellite was first named 'SAARC Satellite', but it was named 'South Asia Satellite' due to Pakistan being not included in it.

This satellite has been built with the aim of increasing communication between disaster relief and South Asian countries. The countries involved in this project will be able to share DTH through satellite and share information at the time of the disaster.

Sources said that the countries involved in this project can use 36 to 54 MHz transponder for their internal use. After launching 104 satellites together in February, the space agency ISRO has established a record.
