The government of India plans to introduce Chandrayaan-3, its third expedition to the moon, throughout the third quarter of the next year, despite the pandemic slowing the rocket's manufacturing. “Chandrayaan-3 is likely to be launched during the third quarter of 2022 assuming normal work-flow henceforth,” said a written answer in the Parliament by Dr Jitendra Singh, minister of state for the department of space.

The Chandrayaan-3 mission is solely intended to be a launch vehicle mission to show India's capabilities of landing softly on a space probe and communicating with Earth through the rover from Chandrayaan-2, which has a seven-year lifetime.

The third mission was proposed just a few months after the Vikram lander on the Chandrayaan-2 mission crashed onto the lunar surface in September 2019, about 2.1 kilometres from its target.

“The realisation of Chandrayaan-3 involves various processes, including finalisation of configuration, subsystem realisation (manufacturing), integration, spacecraft-level detailed testing and a number of special tests to evaluate the systems performance on Earth. The realisation process was hampered due to Covid-19 pandemic,” the answer in Lok Sabha read.

After the United States, the union Of Soviet socialist republics, and China, India would have become the fourth country in the world to land on the moon, but the first to land so nearly to the South Pole.
