India's latest communication satellite GSAT-29 was successfully pushed up to its intended orbit during its third orbit raising activity, said a top official of ISRO on Saturday.
Speaking to IANS, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Chairman K Sivan said: "The GSat-29 satellite orbit was raised successfully. There will be no more orbit raising activity. The satellite will drift gently to its final position."
